Music Ministry

Music Ministry

"Come, let us sing joyfully to the LORD; cry out to the rock of our salvation. Let us greet him with a song of praise, joyfully sing out our psalms." (Psalm 95:1-2)

Our music ministry is eager to provide quality leadership through music that encourages complete participation of the congregation in sung prayer. We need YOU to get involved. Our ministry depends on the members of St. Francis Xavier to bring their talents forward to lead the music. Please consider sharing your gifts of song with us! If you would like to join or to receive more information about our music ministry programs, please contact Nancy Grundhoefer at (205) 803-5415 or by email through our Contact page or by completing our online form.
