SITE UPDATES

(IX-15-17) PSALM 151 Project:

NOW COMPLETED: THE ENTIRE PROPER OF TIME (three-year Sunday liturgical cycle)!
WHAT'S LEFT?  The Proper of Saints (Those solemnities and feasts that fall on fixed dates mainly during Ordinary Time... well, giver or take two normally in Lent and one in Advent).

Don't forget to check out our Liturgical Calendar (which covers 2016-2021), where you can find Psalm 151 pieces listed liturgically, and our Components Sorted Bibically page, where you can find pieces listed by Psalm number or other Scripture passage.  Both of these are on the sidebar!

Now starting work on the Proper of Saints! Stay tuned!

Peace,
