Printable Music for the 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time ~ Sept. 19

We are making the music selections available in advance of the Weekend Liturgies. This will continue as we discern how music can best help our worship as a community. Feel free to print a copy of the lyrics for your personal use and bring it to Mass with you.

This year, during Ordinary Time we will sing the Mass parts from the Mass of the Resurrection, as we have sung in the past.  If you would like a copy to re-familiarize yourself with the melody, click on the link below to view or print the document. A few copies will be available as you enter church, near the worship aids.
