The Next Three Weekends (Pentecost, First Friday, Trinity, Corpus Christi)

There will be no hymnals or missalettes in the pews for a while, but during that time we will print the words to the hymns and the readings as bulletin inserts.  Also, we are printing the words to the Gloria in Latin, as during this time we usually use Latin settings that I think most at Sacred Heart are familiar with at this point.  I inherited these from my predecessor, Dave Sylvestre, who has also used these. ;)

Masses will be at the usual times: Saturday at 5 PM, Sunday at 7:30, 9, and 11:15 AM.
Friday, June 5, is the First Friday Sacred Heart Community Mass at 6 PM in the Church.
Also, please note (this will be in the bulletin anyways): all WEEKDAY Masses, at least for this week, will be in the CHURCH, not the chapel.

Also, please note that music may change as need arises.  We're reopening after a hiatus of almost three months.  We don't exactly know what to expect just yet.  If there are any changes in music, I will try to get it updated here in a timely manner.

So, without further ado...
