Choirs (vigil, 9:30am, or 11:30am) Sacred Heart has choirs for our vigil Masses (both 4pm and the Spanish 6pm), and our 9:30am and 11:30am Sunday Masses. These Music Ministers lead the congregation in prayer and song as instrumentalists and singers. Those who sing or play an instrument may find this a meaningful way to share their talents with the church.
