Psalm: Alstott - Lord, you are good and forgiving (Missalette, page 39)
Alleluia: Mode VI
Offertory hymn: IN BABILONE - There's a wideness in God's mercy (Music Issue, #422)
- Sanctus and Agnus: Vermulst - People's Mass

Communion hymn: Ducote/Daigle - Remember your love (Music Issue, #690)
Recessional hymn: NUN DANKET - Now thank we all our God (Missalette, #26)
Note: I've come to the conclusion that "Remember your love" is the only piece by the Dameans that I would ever touch with a 39-1/2 foot pole. In all actuality, the tune isn't bad at all. In fact, it's a gem compared to most of the stuff I've seen by them over the past 24 years I've been an organist.
Had a wonderful time at the parish staff cookout this afternoon at the Finelli family residence. Thanks much to Fr. Finelli and his parents for making it possible. Further thanks to the staff, who has been thus far a gem to work with. I had fun watching my son Brian smoke a few behinds in horseshoes. He could smoke me on my better day. BTW, for those at the cookout who may be reading this: can you believe Brian's only 12 years old????? :-) He's only two inches shorter than me, and I'm 5'11"!
