Lenten Music Responses

When Lent begins, we will add 1 more part of the Mass of Wonder to our worship at Mass. The Lenten Gospel Acclamation, (see file) uses the same text as our other mass settings, but with a new plaintive cry for us to heed  God’s calling.


Other seasonal changes are: Holy, Holy #308 B, Acclamation of Faith - #2026, and the Lamb of God - #313B.
