The results of the music survey are in and can be found in the September 20 bulletin. If you don't have a printed copy of the bulletin, you can view it from this website. At the bottom of the main page of our website, on the right hand side, the last 2 published bulletins are shown. Click on September 20 and look on pages 6-8 for the results. I want to thank all of those who took the time to take the survey and give me an idea on how to better serve you through music.
Over the next several weeks, my articles will focus on the how's, what's, why's, where's and when's of liturgical music in the parish. I hope you will read them and find them helpful. If you ever have any questions why I do something in the liturgy, please ask. Everything I do in my role as music minister is prescribed in the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM). It is a very beautiful document that gives us proper order and reverence in the liturgy.
Lastly, even though we have several restrictions from both the AOD and CDC regarding music due to Covid-19, it is still helpful to me to develop a database of musical talent in the parish. So, if you play an instrument, have been in a choir or the parish choir, or desire to cantor, please email me at [email protected] and let me know. Also, if you have a child who might be interested in singing in a Christmas Eve children's choir, let me know. We don't know what the Christmas Holy Days will look like, but it's never too early to plan.
In the Potter's Grip,
