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

1.  On June 1-2 we will celebrate the Solemnity of The Ascension and not the Seventh Sunday of Easter.  For both The Ascension and Pentecost (June 8-9), we will have the Sprinkling Rite, followed by the Gloria.  Beginning the weekend of June 15-16, we will sing the Lord Have Mercy with the verses (“You were sent . . .) followed by the Gloria, and this will continue throughout Ordinary Time.

 

2.   For the Feast of The Body and Blood of Christ (June 22-23), please use the Memorial Acclamation, “When we eat this bread and drink this cup . . .”.  For all other masses, you may choose whichever acclamation you prefer.

 

 

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.
