Dear Paul

Vigil Mass

Greetings of a Christmas Kind Well, in spite of a funeral suddenly blocking the final practice our service went like a bomb. The church was full though not as many as last year I think. We began singing carols from the back of the church. Coerced my own daughters into doing this with their friends -...

carols

You are absolutely right - what was I thinking of? I should just be glad to hear them sing! Which they will for sure. And I shall wear my Santa hat and try to get the temporary Deacon to play the Midnight Mass so I can watch a service from somewhere posh and medieval with a glass of wine in my hand ...

Vigil Mass at Christmas

Just read the planner and see no recommendations for the Vigil Mass on Saturday 24th. In our parish this is always the big Christmas Mass with lots of children and families present. Am I missing something here............ Midnight Mass has poor attendance and Christmas morning is very very thinly at...

Kyrie

At the bottom of the photocopy which I was given, obviously for personal practice and not for performance............ it says it is traditional Russian Orthodox liturgy or words to that effect so I would guess it is OK to spread it around? My friend Mo says it would be good to enter into church sing...

learning difficulties

hi Faith and Light Group in Leeds have regular services and care homes too. Most important thing is probably that Mass is shared and not isolated for people with Disabilities, not dumbed down but lively. Don't do like the funeral I played for where they forgot to get a signer for the deaf community....

Hello all Now then, I agree with what is said above especially as regards the participation and support which musicians receive(or don't).... and I wonder if sometimes people in my parish think I am paid for playing the organ or something. Because just before PP found out I could play the beast, we ...

christmas baptism?

Hello all

What do you think of a plan to baptise a new baby during the Christmas Vigil Mass?

Is this a good idea? I'm not too sure if this is OK and can imagine a number of problems with putting the service and Liturgy together and meeting the families needs too.

commisioning

On no I just lost my post! Good thing cos it was very waffly. Apologies for some tangling of the thread. I think that there are some very good reasons why some musicians.organists/directors/liturgists and choirs should be formally and commonly commissioned which are around having a contract and prom...
