  • It is the purpose of St. Francis of Assisi’s Music Ministry to facilitate liturgy with active music participation. We seek to enliven and enrich all who seek to worship at St. Francis of Assisi through music. Music opportunities offered at St. Francis include: Adult and Youth choirs; Handbells, and seasonal Childrens’ choir.Music and the arts are central to the expression of faith, prayer, praise, and devotion, and are essential vehicles of evangelism and outreach into the community. Music and the arts have been, since the beginning of human history, a God given gift.  At St. Francis we encourage you to receive blessings by developing and sharing your musical gifts. We encourage you to join in singing from the assembly or as a member of one of our choirs.

    Remember, Catholics Can Sing!
