Liturgical Music

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

This Lent, our parish will be having Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction at the end of all of our weekend Masses.  When the Eucharist is exposed, it is customary to sing the O Salutaris Hostia.  Please enjoy the following video to help you learn this beautiful hymn:

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. 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.
