Amen! You may have been surprised to hear a musical “Amen” at Mass last weekend. Although we are currently speaking most of the Mass parts, we have added back in a sung Amen at the conclusion of the Eucharistic Prayer. This is a new setting for the Amen, from the Mass of St. John, and it is being sung by our cantors at all Masses. Although congregational singing is still not allowed, we hope that hearing the Amen sung, in proper celebration, will enhance the liturgy for all. You are welcome to continue to speak the word ‘Amen’ when you hear the cantor singing it. We continue to think of creative ways to keep our liturgies inspiring while we weather these unprecedented times. There is healing power in music and we will continue to do our part, in the music ministry, to share that with all.
