The St. Francis de Sales adult choir is a voluntary organization that sings at the 10:00 a.m. Sunday Mass. If you are interested in joining, we’d love to hear you sing. Please stop by before or after the 10:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday to meet with us.
Our Mission is to inspire prayerful worship through song and music for the St. Francis de Sales congregation. In addition, we envision an outreach beyond the parish to the community at large, by providing outstanding musical experiences for a diverse audience, and a platform to promulgate our message of Christian love.
