Holy Week


Schedule Reminders

The call time for Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil is 6:45pm each day. On Easter Sunday, we warm up at 8:30 as usual.


Saturday, February 27, 2021


The Adult Choir page is up to date with the music we have been working on. If you haven't done so already, sign up to sing for Holy Week masses.




Friday, February 12, 2021


Next Wednesday, February 17th is Ash Wednesday. We will meet in church to warm up at 6:30. After mass, please stay for a short practice. There will NOT be any practice on Thursday. 


There is a new link for Teach Me, O Lord on the Choir Music page. It's a recording of the Chamber Choir's version from the 2014 Taize service.


Also, there is a new link for Miserere Mei, Deus in addition to the SATB practice links. It's the recording from the YouTube link edited down to match our choir copy so you can hear what the whole piece will sound like when we sing it.

The Choir Page and Sign-Up Sheets

The Choir page is back and full of lots of (hopefully) helpful links!
As you probably know, there is now a Choir Sign-Up Sheet in addition to the Cantor Sign-Up on the Forms page. The sheet will indicate if God's Garage Band or chamber is scheduled for a particular Sunday. Otherwise, find a blank space and fill in your name to sing.

The mass for Thanksgiving morning has been added, so if you are free and able to sing, grab a slot.

For convenience, I added two columns to the choir sheet to indicate who the cantor is for each mass. Actually, I did it in part for selfish reasons: I didn't like switching back and forth between the two sheets to see when (or what) I've signed up for. Cantors, you do NOT need to do anything different. Just sign up on the cantor sheet like always and - if it works as it should - your name will automatically fill in on the choir sheet.

Hopefully, it is still user-friendly after all the tweaking and tinkering. If not, let me know.

The Mass Music page has been updated through the end of October

Please note:
There is a slight format change for the Psalm and Alleluia:

  • Responsorial Psalm: We will NOT repeat the refrain for the assembly. Mark will play refrain,  Cantor sings refrain. ALL verses of the Psalm are sung as a unit.  Refrain repeated at the end. 
  • Alleluia: We don't repeat the Alleluia after the cantor sings it.
