Tenebrae Service

Our Tenenbrae service will be on Sunday, April 9th at 7pm.  If you have never been to a Tenebrae Service you are in for a real treat.  It is a service of 6 reading & 6 musical offerings.  I encourage all to attend this wonderful service as we open Holy Week.

Cantors Ministry is a vital ministry of St Basil's Music Ministry.  The cantor leads the community to sung prayer with the Hymns, responses & acclamations of the Mass.  If you sing, even in the shower, then you are needed at St. Basil's.  Contact Jack for a time to have him listen to your vioce & get you ready to lead.  Contact Jack at
