Happy Thanksgiving to all family, friends, parishioners, co-workers (singers and horn section, as well as other parish staff), and of course our pastor, Father Bucci.  I thank you all for another great year of music and your support thereof, and I wish blessings on all who read this.

Also a Happy Thanksgiving to some of my favorite visiting priests who have said Mass here on occasion, some more than others: namely Father Albert Marcello, Father Chris Feeney, Father Derek Puleo, and Father Peter Mongeon.

Today I post the music for our 9 AM Thanksgiving Day Mass, in the Ordinary Form.  I will have the hymns in time to post this weekend's music (First Sunday of Advent in both forms) on Friday.
