The Three-Day Weekend

For September and October, we have a change in Mass setting.  The Sanctus, Amen, and Agnus Dei are from Richard Proulx's A Community Mass, a setting we have used at times over the past few years.
Also, for September only, the Memorial Acclamation (our response to "The mystery of faith") is the same tune as the We proclaim your death, O Lord that we sang during July and August, but is actually the third acclamation, Save us, Savior of the world.  September could be referred to as the "month of the Holy Cross".  The Solemnity of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross falls on September 14 (which falls on a Wednesday this year, but if it falls on a Sunday, it takes place over the regularly numbered Sunday of Year).  In addition, the Gospel reading for this weekend is that in which Jesus speaks, "If you wish to follow me, you must deny yourself and take up your very cross".

Save us, Savior of the world, for by your cross and resurrection you have set us free.

Gloria: recited or Holy Angels Mass (BMP) (weekend Masses only)
Sanctus: A Community Mass (Richard Proulx)
Memorial Acclamation: Save us, Savior of the World from Holy Angels Mass
