FEBRUARY 2020 NOTE TO MUSICIANS FROM FR. CARL & THE LITURGY COMMITTEE:

 

1.      We will continue to sing the “Gloria” and the “Lord Have Mercy” at all weekend masses throughout Ordinary Time until Lent begins.  For the “Lord Have Mercy”, please also sing the intro verses (“You were sent to heal the contrite of heart  . . .”)  using the “Mass of Renewal” version or any mass setting that includes the intro verses.

 

2.      You may choose whichever Memorial Acclamation (Mystery of Faith) you prefer throughout Ordinary Time.

             

*NOTES FOR THE LENTEN SEASON

 

 

1.       We will use the Penetential Act #1 (I Confess to Almighty God . . .; therefore

the choir should sing the Lord Have Mercy WITHOUT the verses. 

 

2.       Please use the Mass of Renewal Mass Settings for all other mass parts during the Lenten Season. 

 

3.       We will use Option 2 of the Memorial Acclamation (When We Eat This

Bread . . .)

 

 

 

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.
