New Hymnals

You probably noticed the new blue hymnal in your pew today, Gather Third Edition. Our well-loved and well-used green Gather books served our parish for over twenty years. Our music ministry has been planning a change for the past several years. The Praise and Contemporary Choirs have been using the new hymnal for two years. The new Gather hymnal includes traditional hymns, Chants, songs from the post-Vatican II era that are found in most Catholic parishes, and multi-cultural selections. In addition to the familiar there is a broad selection of new music in popular style. There are eleven musical settings of the Mass, including several that we already sing at Holy Name. This hymnal represents the musical diversity of the era in which we live, and worship, and it will carry us forward praising God in song.
