NOTE TO MUSICIANS FROM FR. CARL & THE LITURGY COMMITTEE

 

During the Advent Season, we will sing the Penitential Rite with the verses (the Lord Have Mercy), but not the Gloria.  As you know, the Gloria is omitted during the Advent and Lenten Seasons.  For Advent and the Christmas Season, we will sing a common Memorial Acclamation (Mystery of Faith); the third option which is “Save us, Savior of the World, for by your Cross and Resurrection you have set us free.”

 

The following are general Liturgical reminders: 

Please announce each hymn before singing, the number and the book it is taken from.  Also, if the the Responsorial Psalm is sung, please wait about 5 to 10 seconds after the first reading in order to allow time for reflection on what was just read.
