Music Ministry

Music Ministry

We need YOU! We need more singers (especially men!) and instrumentalists for our choirs … contemporary, traditional, handbell and children’s. Please know, however, that our primary instrument of praise is not organ, guitar, handbell or flute … it is the human voice! I hope some of you might consider tithing a year to music ministry. This is a rewarding way to tithe your time and talent to the parish and help our parish family to pray. Call or email Tom Franzak at 724.941.9406 ext. 108 or with any questions, or stop and see him after Sunday Mass! Rehearsals are:

Handbell Choir -  Mondays 6:30 to 7:30 pm

Contemporary Choir - Tuesdays 7:00 to 8:30 pm

Chorale -  Thursdays 7:00 to 8:30 pm

The Choirs of St. Benedict the Abbot

New members are always welcome. It is not required that you read music. It is not required that you attend every rehearsal or every Liturgy scheduled with the Choir you are participating in. Instrumentalists are always welcome to share your gifts of time and talent at any Liturgy throughout the year. For more information, please contact Tom Franzak, Director of Music Ministries at 724.941.9406 Ext. 108 or by email at
