Sunday 12, 2017

All that is hidden – Bernadette Farrell
Summer Gloria – Nick Baty
Ps 24: Answer me, O God – Nick Baty
Warrington Alleluia – Nick Baty
Christ be our light – Bernadette Farrell
New Assisi Acclamations – Nick Baty
Warrington Lamb of God – Nick Baty
In the house of the Lord – Nick Baty
Take Christ to the world – Paul Inwood

We've never before used All that is Hidden as a gathering song – it begins so quietly – but as it contains much of today's Gospel it was a given and worked quite well. Alas, poor Ps 68 was kicked out in favour of Ps 24 (although with the same response). Ps 68 appears just twice in the three year cycle – and one of those times is today. And, as Sunday 12 appears so rarely.... Well, you get the idea.

Corpus Christ, 2017

Now in this banquet – Marty Haugen
Gloria Santa Klaus – Nick Baty
Ps 115: How can I thank him? – Nick Baty
Summer Alleluia – Nick Baty
You are the living bread – Nick Baty
Seanathair Acclamations – Nick Baty
Communion Song 3 – Paul Inwood
Eat this bread – Taizé
Alleluia, sing to Jesus – Nick Baty

We were few in number this morning – no doubt the glorious weather had sent folk dashing to the coast. But what the congregation lacked in number, they made up for with volume and enthusiasm. Fr Richard spoke about the offertory prayers ("Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation..."). Alas, Yours Truly had scheduled a longish piece of music which then cut across these. Note to Self: Get it right next time!

Trinity, 2017

Sing to the world of Christ – Lee/Sands
Warrington Gloria – Nick Baty
Ps 32: O give thanks to the Lord – Nick Baty
Alleluia Trinitas – Nick Baty
Holy is God – Paul Inwood
Seanathair Acclamations – Nick Baty
Communion Song 3 – Paul Inwood
Be still for the presence of the Lord
Jubilate, everybody

This was the first time we'd sung Paul Inwood's Holy is God, even though it's been around for more than 30 years. The congregation took to and were undeterred when the choir sang in canon. Alleluia Trinitas was back, after an absence of more than three months and was still sung with gusto. Methinks they like that one.

We travelled to St Francis Xavier Church, half a mile up the road, to lead the singing at Confirmations for our pastoral area. Archbishop Malcolm confirmed 20 adults in a simple and moving service. And there was certainly spirit in the singing – the congregation, from communities across the area, sang everything we threw at them and said thank you afterwards. A memorable occasion.

The Liverpool Marathon. And our church was cut off by road blocks as runners from all over the UK jogged around the 10K route. Those of us who felt slightly less energetic had to leave our cars half-a-mile away and walk! Fr Richard has warned everyone and advised those who could to go to Mass in one of other, more accessible, buildings, leaving us with the smallest congregation ever – 42 including choir and servers.
