INTRODUCTION OF NEW SUNG MASS SETTING - REVISED ROMAN MISSAL
With the implementation of the new translation of the Roman Missal comes the need for new sungMass settings used during the celebration of the Eucharist (Gloria, Holy, Holy, Memorial Acclamations).To assist with a smooth transition to these new sung texts, Bishop Mulhall has granted permission forparishes in the diocese to begin using the new sung Mass texts in advance of the full implementation onNovember 26
. Over time we will learn various sung Mass settings, but to begin the Diocese of Pembroke has asked parishes to introduce a common setting called “
The Mass of St. RalphSherwin
”. Those involved in music ministry at St. Francis Xavier Parish are currently working withthis music and we will begin using it at our Masses on the weekend of October 15th/16th. One of the creative ways that we as a congregation can become more familiar with this musical setting inadvance is by listening to it on the internet!
The Mass of St. Ralph Sherwin

To watch Eva in action is an inspiration beyondimaging, and the lessons she teaches go far beyond history. She talks of bullying. And being a bystander. Of respect and forgiveness. And never giving up… nomatter what. In a dozen years she’s driven more than a quarter of a million milesto touch the lives of the young, and in their words and faces you can see thechange in an instant.
