Singing Hymns In Church

Youth Mass

We had another youth Mass this past Sunday. It went really well. The choir is coming together. We have four youth and three adults now and they seem to really be developing into a group and expanding their repertoire of music. We had two teen lectors and three teen ushers as well.

Some of the new music they played today:

  • Holy, Holy, Holy Cry by Rick Modlin (Entrance)
  • We Are His People by Greg Walton (Preparation of the Gifts)
  • Rise Up With Him by Janet Vogt (Communion)
  • He Is Exalted by Twila Paris (Sending Forth)

We invited all students in 5th grade through high school to sit together.  I was sitting near them and it was great to hear them participating in the liturgy. They seem to like the contemporary music. I could really hear them singing Holy, Holy, Holy Cry. It gives me great hope for the future to hear our young Catholics coming together and actively worshiping.
