Music Ministry Minor Program Overview

St. Francis of Assisi was known as a “troubadour for the Lord” and Franciscan University has long had a special charism of singing praise to God. By blending courses from our Fine Arts and Theology departments, the Music Ministry Minor is a program of study that examines the practical application of leading worship in both liturgical and non-liturgical environments. Students will study basic skills necessary for music performance, theoretical and practical applications for music ministry, the liturgy, the role of the lay ecclesial minister and Christian prayer as expressed in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Students will have an opportunity to apply what they have learned in activities such as playing for Mass at the chapel, Festivals of Praise, or Nights of Praise and Worship (students will need to pass an audition to participate in those ensembles).

CAT 207 Introduction to Music Ministry was created by Bob Rice and Matt Maher, and features videos from Grammy nominated Catholic songwriter Sarah Hart, liturgical composer Curtis Stephen (Mass of Renewal), popular Catholic musician Steve Angrisanno, FUS alumna Martin Doman, and many others.
