St. Mary’s Musicians -
Another holiday season is upon us! Things to keep in mind:
*There are new copies of the Breaking Bread hymnals in the pews so the numbers may not match any old copies you have at home.
*We will again use Come, Lord! Maranatha for the Advent offertory song with different verses for each week.
*We will begin using Mass of St. Paul the Apostle with the 1st Acclamation option, We Proclaim Your Death. This Mass setting is NOT in the Breaking Break books which means we will need to be very confident for people to begin joining us. The link will take you to the OCP website so you can hear the music. Once on the site, click on View Songs and a new window will open with playable files.
*For Christmas this year, I’m asking anyone available to come and help for as many Masses as possible. Please let me know what Mass times you might be able to help with so I can coordinate all of you - it’s going to be crazy!
