Musical Opportunities

Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise    (Psalm 98:4)

 

 

Please join our various ensembles!  Contact Matt Munhall at Mmunhall@stfrancisparish.net or 614-537-1933. – Matt is the Director of Music and Liturgy and is excited to meet with you to discuss your talents and interest.

There are volunteer opportunities for:

  • Singers–both choral and praise and worship music. This ministry is made up of parishioners with all levels of ability. Some have years of private lessons and experience and some are learning about music for the first time.
  • Instrumentalists—including percussion, strings, woodwinds, brass, guitar and bass players who have experience reading music or playing by ear proficiently in group settings.
  • Technologists—to be responsible for sound and recording on a weekly basis and even live video at various times throughout the year. Minimal experience with electronics and computers is requested.  Training will be provided.

 

The Parish Choir is open to singers of high school age and up.  We sing for the 10:45 a.m. Sunday Mass during the academic year, and for other Mass times as scheduled, in addition to feast days and special choral events. Rehearsals are held on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm in the choir loft.  The choir also prepares for mass at 10:00 am on Sundays.

 

 The Youth Choir consists of school students and they sing at the Masses on Thursday.  The choir also sings on select 5:00 pm Saturday (usually 2nd Saturday of the month) Masses.  See parish website calendar.

 

The 5:00 pm Saturday Ensemble plays a blend of contemporary and praise and worship music and we are currently looking for more instrumentalists and singers.  Any age is welcome. Intermediate proficiency requested.

 

The 8:00 am Sunday Mass plays traditional music and is led by our beautiful Austin organ and cantor.

 

The 5:00 pm Sunday Mass Worship Group plays entirely praise and worship music and are open for new volunteers.

 

Matt Munhall has over 15 years of experience as a performing musician, songwriter, and producer in popular music.   As a life-long Catholic, his journey led him to the decision to become a music minister for the church.  He began serving at Saint Francis in June 2018.
