Choir News

Our music program is starting back in full swing! All choirs are welcoming new members. If you are interested in any of the choirs below and would like more information, contact Susan DeMarco, Director of Liturgical Music, at 262-377-1070, ext. 324 or send an email.

St. Bonaventure Choir (2nd through 8th grade):
The St. Bonaventure Choir is for children with unchanged voices in 2nd through 8th grades. They rehearse weekly on Wednesday afternoons and sing on the first Sunday of the month at the 10 a.m. Mass, as well as on Christmas Eve.

St. Timothy Choir (8th grade through 12th grade):
The St. Timothy Choir sings a combination of traditional sacred music and praise and worship. They sing 2-3 times a month at the 6 p.m. Mass. Rehearsals are right before Mass.

St. Francis Borgia Choir (High school students and adults):
This choir rehearses weekly on Thursday evenings and sings at the 10 a.m. Mass. They have the first Sunday of each month off. They also sing at Christmas, Easter and on special feast days.

St. Dunstan Hand Bell Choir:
We are looking for three more hand bell ringers so that we can bring back the hand bell choir. Rehearsals will be weekly and they will play once a month. Interested members need to have a strong sense of rhythm, be able to read music, and be able to stand for at least an hour.

St. Joseph of Arimathea Funeral Choir (anyone):
The lowest time commitment of our choirs, the St. Joseph of Arimathea Funeral choir sings at funeral Masses. Rehearsals are one hour before funerals.

St. Cecilia Organ Program (High school students and adults):
High school students and adults with a strong piano background are invited to be a part of this exciting program where they can learn to play the organ in exchange for helping to play for Masses at St. Francis Borgia. Other special events have included talks by our organ tuner to learn about careers in the field of organ tuning, along with an explanation and tour of the inside of the organ led by our organ tuner. Three neighboring parishes have hired students from this program as substitute organists, always with great reviews of their playing. Space in this program is limited.
