Mass of St. Ann

Hello St. Francis De Sales.
As you have noticed, we have begun using a beautiful new "Mass Setting".  The Mass of St. Ann is a contemporary setting that is energetic and really easy to learn.

Music for each Mass is broken down into two categories.  The first type is called the "Mass Ordinary".  The Mass Ordinary includes all of the parts of the Mass that are sung (or spoken) each week.  They include:
Gloria (Glory to God)
Holy, Holy, Holy
Memorial Acclamation
Great Amen
Lamb of God

This is where the Mass of St. Ann comes in.  We will be singing this music for the next few months and we are hoping everyone will sing these pieces with joy.

The second category is called the Mass Proper.  This music changes each week depending on the Liturgical year and specific scriptural themes of the week.  These include:
Processional Hymn
Responsorial Psalm
Offertory Hymn
Communion Hymn
Recessional Hymn

Below is a link to a recording of the "Mass of St. Ann".  We encourage you to learn it and sing it out loud and proud at Mass each week.

Hello St. Francis De Sales!!!
We welcome you to our new Music Ministry Blog and Information Site.  Each week we will post information, music as well as audio and video clips of our worship.  We encourage you to listen and pray with us through song.

We want everyone to fully participate in our worship.  Your voice inspires us and will hopefully enhance your prayer experience.  So, below is a link to the songs we will be singing at this weekend's liturgy.  Listen, enjoy and then bring it to church this weekend and worship with us.
