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 continue to only sing the “Big Four” but I have included the Psalm, Alleluia, and Mass setting in case things change at some point.
5) For Christmas this year everyone is welcome. Please let me know what Mass times you might be able to help with so I can coordinate all of you. The following is a rehearsal and Mass schedule (there is a calendar version of this information at the end of your packet):
