MARCH NOTE TO MUSICIANS FROM FR. CARL & THE LITURGY COMMITTEE

1.      Beginning Ash Wednesday, we will sing the “Lord Have Mercy” but not the Gloria throughout the Season of Lent. If possible, please sing an arrangement of the “Lord Have Mercy” without the invocations, “You were sent . . .”,  just sing “Lord Have Mercy, Christ Have Mercy . . .” as we will be reciting the Confiteor (I Confess). 

2.     Beginning Ash Wednesday and throughout the Season of Lent, we will sing a common Memorial Acclamation (Mystery of Faith), which will be: “We Proclaim Your Death, O Lord ...”

3.     For the Third & Fourth Sundays of Lent, the 10:00 Mass will use the Cycle A Readings (First and Second Scrutiny of the Elect) since we have a catechumen.  The Resp. Psalm music for these readings has been provided for you.  

 

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