Last Sunday Father Bradford announced from the pulpit that, beginning Whitsunday, the Archdiocese of Boston will allow congregational singing of hymns. Accordingly we will resume our normal practices of singing the hymns together and also return to singing the Psalm to Anglican chant. The requirement to be masked while in the church or on the grounds remains in effect at this time.
The prohibition against distributing hymnals and liturgical aids remains in effect; therefore, if you own a personal copy of the HYMNAL 1940, please bring it with you. If you do not own a copy, please see Father Bradford after Mass if you would like to arrange to borrow one of the parish’s copies “for the duration.”
