In our Pews – The Parish Book of Chant

You’ll notice that we have a book in our pews: the Parish Book of Chant, published by the Church Music Association of America. This wonderful collection of Gregorian ordinaries, hymns, and antiphons contains virtually everything the congregation could ever need to participate in a sung Mass, whether it be a Novus Ordo or Traditional Latin Mass. They also include the full texts of both Masses to help you follow along with the priest’s prayers.

Both the white and red (Latin) Mass booklets that we’ve been using for the past year have served as a placeholder for this Parish Book of Chant. The PBC and the Jean de Brebeuf Hymnal skillfully express the riches of our musical deposit of faith, encompassing a vast selection of both liturgical and devotional materials. May they greatly aid you in your assistance at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

On Thursday, June 15th, Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish will be hosting our monthly Young Adults Holy Hour & Social.Meet at 7:00pm in the church for a Holy Hour of Eucharistic Adoration where we will be singing hymns, praying the rosary, and praying the Litany of The Sacred Heart of Jesus as we look forward to our parish’s Patronal Feast the following day. There will also be time for silent prayer.After the Holy Hour, head outside to the courtyard where we’ll have an ice cream sundae bar! You are welcome to stay until 9:30pm to enjoy some ice cream and Christian fellowship. ... See MoreSee Less
