Fwd: Liturgy Notes March 2014

Parishes Working Together
March 2014
Cantor at Opening Mass

Welcome to the March edition of “Liturgy Notes”, the Diocese of Wollongong liturgy and music e-Bulletin. 

On Leave!

This month is a brief newsletter as I have been on four weeks leave. The major time sensitive information is in relation to music recommendations for up coming Lent - Holy Week - Easter liturgies.

Music Repertoire Recommendations

Please note the special nature of the Palm Sunday, Chrism Mass, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Vigil liturgies. The standard format of the music recommendations, indicating the different song forms of the Mass, will not always apply. For example, there is no Entrance, Offertory or Sending Forth hymn on Good Friday; and the Sequence is sung before the Alleluia on Easter Sunday.

Also, many of the recommended songs are for use to accompany the various special rituals (Procession of Palms, Presentation and Blessing of the Oils, Washing of Feet, Veneration of the Cross, Sprinkling of Baptismal Water etc).

Music recommendations have been added for March - April 2014. Go to: 

All the best
