Notice for Parish Musicians
A MUSIC WORKSHOP TO PLAN FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF
THE THIRD EDITION OF THE ROMAN MISSAL
The Sacramentary currently being used to provide the texts for the celebration of Mass is soon to be replaced. Some of the texts in what will be called the Roman Missal that are spoken or sung by the assembly will change. Music ministers will play an important role in assisting their Sunday assemblies to make the transition to the new texts.
To provide parish musicians with information, resources and practical ideas, a workshop will be offered:
Saturday, May 28
9:00 am – 3:30 pm
Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish
3 Combermere Drive | Toronto ON | M3A 2W4
The nearest intersection is Victoria Park and York Mills Road
This workshop will assist music ministers to bring the new translation to life in their parishes. It will provide an opportunity to review 3 new Mass settings that have been commissioned by the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops as well as the chant setting in the Roman Missal itself. Practical ideas to assist you in introducing this music to your assembly will be presented.
Further details will be available in the near future.
The Missale Romanum (Roman Missal), the ritual text for the celebration of the Mass, was promulgated by Pope Paul VI in 1970 as the definitive text of the reformed liturgy of the Second Vatican Council. That Latin text, the editio typica (typical edition), was translated into various languages for use around the world. The Holy See issued a revised text, the editio typica altera, in 1975. Pope John Paul II promulgated the third edition (editio typica tertia) of the Missale Romanum during the Jubilee Year in 2000. Among other things, the third edition contains prayers for the celebration of recently canonized saints, additional prefaces for the Eucharistic Prayers, additional Masses and Prayers for Various Needs and Intentions, and some updated and revised rubrics (instructions) for the celebration of the Mass. The translation of that text will soon be available for use in Canada.
Scripture to keep in mind
Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth:  Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,  A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren.  My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
