Ministries - Liturgy - Music

Liturgical Music ♪♫♪

 The Music Ministry at St. Francis Catholic Community is blessed to have a variety of cultures, sharing a variety of music and musical styles.

The list of mass times, music ministries, and languages is below.

We all have God-given gifts, and if your gift is music (whether instrumental or vocal), WE NEED YOU!

Sharing your gift of music is a part of sharing your time, talent and treasure in being a part of the community of St. Francis. It’s also a great way to learn more about our faith, and be around other believers who love to sing. The only requirements are ability to carry a tune, and to attend weekly rehearsal most of the time. Join us in leading our community through music and song!

For all English language choirs, please contact the Music Ministry Office at 760-945- 8043 or You can also introduce yourself to the leader of any of the groups after any mass!
