…Let ev’ry instrument be tuned for praise!
Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise!
And may God give us faith to
sing always:  
Mark 14:26 


Welcome from Allen Sterwalt, Director of Music

I would like to welcome you to the St. Francis Xavier Music Ministry webpage!  Here at St. Francis Xavier, singers and instrumentalists of all ages come together to worship the Lord through music.  We sing with the parish community in hopes that the Holy Spirit may be found and heard in each of us.  Sacred music offers a unique gift to teach, encourage, and inspire faith as we journey in community through life.  It is our shared desire for spiritual growth that unites us through this special ministry.

Please take time to listen to the varied examples of sacred music performed by our dedicated choirs, cantors, and instrumental ensembles.  I invite you to visit the “We Sing with the Spirit” link for memorable musical highlights from services and concerts.

Also, please take a few moments to visit the “We Serve, Unite, and Inspire” link, which highlights what our music ministry means to our members.  If you are interested in becoming a member of the St. Francis Xavier music ministry, please contact me at asterwalt@sfxlg.org or 708-352-0168.  There are numerous ways to share your talents at our parish.  All are welcome who have a voice to raise and a tune to play!

God’s blessings to you.


Allen J. Sterwalt, Director of Music
