A note about Pentecost Sunday 5/15/2016

Hi everyone,

In a couple weeks, we will celebrate Pentecost, the birth of the Church.
  1. Entrance song will be same as last year, it is in the Journeysongs book #436 - "Holy Spirit, Come Now"  YouTube link:
  2. You will need to assign 2 people to process and play tambourines. Procession is the same as in past years: process to front, one in front of ambo, one in front of cantor lectern; exit when Gloria starts. It is your responsibility to run through the procession with your tambourine players.
  3. Sequence is sung - verses 1, 2, & 5, along with the Gospel acclamation from the same setting. I've attached the assembly and piano music.
  4. There will be incense at all Masses

Also, Pentecost is the last Sunday of Easter. Starting Monday, we will be in Ordinary Time. Choirs will now have their choice of Mass setting. Please change from Easter season Mass parts to a different setting.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you

New Cantor Training

Happy Easter Everyone,

First off, thank you to those who participated the Salubong service this morning!  Also, thank you to the parents who were able to attend as well, your presence means a lot to us.  The service went well.

For those of you who are interested in becoming a cantor we will have 2 mandatory sessions held in the next 2 weeks.

Here's the information from Mrs. San Pedro:

Part I of cantor training will be this Thursday, March 31, at 6 PM in the Parish office. Duration is 1 hour. 

Since this may be short notice for some, I will have a makeup for Part I next Friday, April 8, same time, same place.

The "master class" portion (Part II) will be next Saturday, April 9, at 10 AM in the church.

Both parts are mandatory and results will be given to directors the following week.

Please reply to this email with the names of your potential cantors no later than Thursday morning so I know who to expect and can prepare enough materials.

Thank you.

Some tips for cantors:
  1. Please enunciate your words when singing.
  2. When cantoring in front of congregation, find a focal point while you are looking up.  Sing with the congregation.  If looking at the congregation makes you nervous, I suggest to look at the stain glass window of Mother Mary at the back by the choir loft.  
  3. During the sessions, cantors might have to demonstrate their skill by singing a psalm.  In the past cantors demonstrated "The Lord is Kind and Merciful" by Colsons.  It is suggested to practice this song and it's verses.  
Please let me know if you are interested in attending these sessions via email - ms.ramos.teach@gmail
