20th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Here is a list of what will be  happening for the music at Resurrection Catholic Church (in Winter Garden, FL) this weekend:

  • August  17                              20th Sunday in OT

GATHERING:  Here I Am to Worship    (Tim Hughes)
PSALM:  66, Let All the Earth    Gather Comprehensive # 65 (Haugen)

Voice of Truth    (Casting Crowns)
CLOSING:  Forever    (Chris Tomlin)

About a year ago I decided to take a different track than the usual GIA/OCP/WLP  repertoire and see how the parish would react to Contemporary Christian Music. They have really embraced it. Our 5PM and 11:15AM Masses now both feature Praise Bands. I’ve left the 8:15 more traditional so people not so comfortable with the direction would still have a place to go. Besides, no one is begging for drums that early…:) We still do a mix of old and new like Be Not Afraid, You Are Mine, One Bread, One Body, and On Eagles Wings; but the pendulum has definitely gone in the direction of the newer material.

Then Jesus said to her in reply,
“O woman, great is your faith!
Let it be done for you as you wish.”
