St. Mary’s Musicians -
Another holiday season is upon us. Things to keep in mind:
1) 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.
2) We will again use Come, Lord! Maranatha for the Advent offertory song with different verses for each week.
3) Don’t forget to check out the website, www.stmarysgfnd.com for lots of information.
4) We will begin using Missa Simplex with the 3rd Acclamation option, Save Us Savior. 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. A copy of the accompaniment and vocal parts is attached at the end of this packet as well as on the St. Mary’s website.
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! The following is a rehearsal and Mass schedule (there is a calendar version of this information at the end of your packet):
