Youth Choir
The Youth Choir provides a place for the younger members of our parish to develop and expand their own musical gifts and to grow in faith as they learn to lead our congregation in singing God’s praise. The youth choir rehearses on Tuesdays at 6:30PM in the Church from September through May and sings at the 11:30AM Youth Mass once a month. The Youth
Choir also participates in our Christmas Concert, May Crowning, Confirmation Mass, as well as other masses and events throughout the year. All instrumentalists and singers Grades 5 through 12 are welcome!
 
Christmas Children's Choir
Children in Grades 1 through 4 are invited to participate in our Christmas Concert and Christmas Eve Family mass. There will be an advertisement and sign up sheet during masses in October. 
 
Adult Choir
The Holy Spirit remains with the parishioners of St. Francis as we continue our Journey to God through the Ministry of Music. The volunteer members of the Adult Choirs rejoice and praise God through songs of faith, inspired by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The choir members rehearse on Thursdays at 7PM and sing at the 9:30AM mass every Sunday. The Adult Choir also participates in our Christmas Concert and all other Holy Day Masses, including Christmas Eve and Easter Vigil masses. The Adult Choir has been featured in our Concert Series, in both the Voice Concert in May as well as A Night of Opera with Sarah Lucero. They continue to work on several professional recordings and concerts throughout the year, singing all genres of Music, both liturgical and secular. The choir is in need of Basses and Tenors! Please contact Natasha for more information.

Voice Class and Private Music Lessons
Our Music Ministry offers a Group Voice Class October through May. This is open to any members of the parish. It costs $5 per class with a $20 registration fee for books and materials. The Voice Class works in depth to learn basic Vocal Pedagogy and Technique, as well as Music Theory and score study. We put on a Voice Concert in May featuring solos and group numbers sung by members of the class.
