Assumption’s vision for music in one that reflects the inclusive, positive, down-to-earth spirituality of the Franciscans who staff the parish and is deeply committed to Vatican II’s vision of full & active participation of the assembly. Assumption also has a long tradition of excellence and we welcome those who would like to join us in worship and music.
We offer a blend of traditional and contemporary music using GIA’s latest hymnal; Ritual Song published in 2016. Ritual Song—Second Edition includes music that has withstood the test of time, the best of new music and the most successful mass settings and service music written since the implementation of the Revised Order of Mass.
Would you like to try singing in the choir?
You don’t need to know how to read music, but you do need to love to sing! And love to pray, blending with others in the choir.
