Sunday XXX in Ordinary Time - October 28, 2007
Holy Ghost Church, Tiverton, RI

Our 10:00 Mass this coming Sunday will be interpreted in sign language. The music will be the same for all three Masses. Celebrant for the sign language Mass will be Fr. Joseph Bruce, SJ. So this will be two firsts for me - my first sign language Mass, and the first Mass (that I recall anyways) that I'll have done with a Jesuit.

Anyhoo - my list for this week:

Praise, my soul, the King of heaven..."Lauda Anima"
Gloria VIII...Mode V
The Lord hears the cry of the poor...Ostrowski
Alleluia...Mode VI
O breathe on me, O breath of God..."St. Columba"
Jubliate Deo...chants
Lord's Prayer (in English)...chant
This is the feast of victory for our God..."Festival Canticle"
Faith of our fathers, living still..."St. Catherine"

As for the Latin chants, the person who will be doing the sign language has been informed and will sign according to the English translations. This should be interesting - not necessarily in a bad way.
