Good Friday, April 15, 2022

The Family Choir will be singing Friday, April 15, 2022 for the  3 p.m. Service.  We will meet at 1:15 p.m. on Friday afternoon to get organized for the practice and then begin rehearsal at 1:30 a.m.  The practice will end at 2:30 p.m. to leave a period of quiet before the Service begins.
 
The transparent vinyl sheet in front of the choir area at the front has been removed.  There are no longer any social distancing requirements, and no mask requirements.  Choir members are welcome to join in singing for this service.  Those who may prefer to sing with the choir from the pews in front of the choir are welcome to do so.  If you are still concerned about COVID, please feel free to join us from the congregation.

The Good Friday Service is not a Mass.  Instead, it consists of three components: the Liturgy of the Word, the Adoration of the Holy Cross, and Holy Communion.  Therefore, we won't be singing the usual parts of the Mass for Lent (except for the Gospel Acclamation), and there will be no Entrance or Recessional hymns.

The music selections for this Good Friday Service are listed below.

CBW - Catholic Book of Worship III
GP - Glory and Praise III
Mass Parts - Please see the 2021 Mass Setting available online.

Entrance:  No entrance hymn.  The priest and servers enter in silence.

First Reading:

Psalm:
  Psalm 31 - link to PDFlink to audio

Response:  Father into your hands, I commend my spirit.

Second Reading:

Gospel Acclamation:  2021 Mass Setting - Lenten Gospel Acclamation

Christ became obedient for us to death, even death on a Cross.
Therefore God exalted him and gave him the name above every name.

Solemn Intercessions:  Fr. Mitch will be intoning the intercessions.  He will first intone the intention.  There will be a brief pause.  Then he will say (or sing) the prayer response.  The choir will respond with a simple sung Amen.  There are 10 intercessions in total.

Adoration of the Cross:  Fr. Mitch will process in from the back of the church with a cross veiled in a violet covering.    He will first uncover a little of the upper part of the cross.  Then he will sing, "Behold the wood of the Cross, on which hung the salvation of the world."  The choir and congregation responds "Come, let us adore."   The second time more of the cross is exposed and the refrains repeated.  Similarly, the same thing is done the third time and the entire veil is removed.  Fr. Mitch will venerate the cross and then be seated.  There will not be any veneration of the cross by the congregation at this time.  The hymn will be sung after Fr. Mitch is seated.

Hymn During Adoration of the Cross:  CBW #378 O Sacred Head Surrounded

Communion:  Fr. Mitch will prepare the bare altar for Holy Communion.  The Our Father will be receited along with additional prayers.  There will be no Lamb of God said or sung.

Communion:  CBW #379 Behold The Wood
                         CBW #380 Jesus Remember Me
                         G&P #300 Were you There

Recessional:  No recessional hymn.  The priest and servers leave in silence.
