We sternly urge adherence to the established norms by those who raise an uproar or a challenge in the name of a misunderstood creative freedom, and thus inflict so much harm on the Church with their rash innovations, so vulgar, so frivolous—and sometimes even lamentably profane. Otherwise the essence of dogma and obviously of ecclesiastical discipline will be weakened, in line with the famous axiom: "lex orandi, lex credendi." We therefore call for absolute loyalty so that the rule of faith may remain safe.
— Pope Paul VI (27 June 1977)

Please wear your best clothing—this is a special offering to God, and shows our guests that we take seriously the most Sacred Liturgy.


I am going to work you very hard on Sunday, starting at 5:00pm.

So please be prepared to work hard on this choral music. Consider bringing water.

Here’s the MUSICAL PROGRAM for Sunday—please make sure you know your music very well, although ladies don’t have to learn the Communion this week.


We will be taking some choir breaks after 14 May. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, please begin learning #5612, because after two years I think we are ready to sing the full Gloria!

Also, please begin learning #5984, a new setting of the CREDO.
