Liturgical Music

At. St. Francis Borgia Parish we share our musical talents in the celebration of the liturgy through singing and musical accompaniment. Here are the opportunities our parish offers:

Vocal

St. Bonaventure Choir

This choir is for singers grade 2-8 with unchanged voices. It helps young singers learn proper singing technique in a way that strives to also arouse their devotion. They sing once a month at the 10 a.m. Mass.

St. Timothy Choir (Grades 8-12)

The St. Timothy Choir is for singers in grades 8-12. The choir sings Sunday nights during the school year. Music is a blend of traditional music and praise & worship music. No experience is necessary.

St. Joseph of Arimathea Funeral Choir

The St. Joseph of Arimathea Choir sings at funerals and assists in the prayers of the requiem, or funeral, liturgy with appropriate choral literature. Anyone is welcome to join.

St. Francis Borgia Choir

The St. Francis Borgia Choir is the primary adult choir in the parish. Open to adults and high school students, this choir sings a variety of sacred choral music from various eras. They sing weekly at the 10 a.m. Mass (except for the first Sunday of the month) and on special liturgies of the year.

Cantors

It is the cantor’s primary role to sing the Responsorial Psalm and Gospel Acclamation at Mass but also to lead the congregation in the sung dialogues and the hymns. We are always looking for singers with a clear voice who wish to serve.

Instrumental

St. Dunstan Handbell Choir

This ensemble will ring our three-octave set of English handbells once a month at the 4:30 p.m. anticipated Mass. Members need to have a strong sense of rhythm, be able to read music, and be able to stand for at least an hour. Open to adults and high school students.

St. Cecilia Organ Program

High school students and adults with strong piano background are invited to be a part of this exciting program in which they can learn to play the organ in exchange for helping to play for Masses at St. Francis Borgia.
