MUSIC FOR HOLY MASS
A good chunk of what is sung today is a repeat of what we are singing the Sunday before (Holy Family). We will, however, be switching books. We'll be using the Maroon hymnals for this Solemnity. Masses will be at 6 PM on Monday December 31, 2012, and 9 and 11:15 AM on Tuesday January 1, 2013.
