SITE UPDATES

(V-20-17) PSALM 151 Project:

NOW COMPLETED: Everything from Advent up through Sunday XIII of the Year.
FEATURED ALLELUIA: Alleluia "Providentiae", dedicated in memory of the late C. Alexander Peloquin, extracted and re-worked from my now-obsolete Providence Mass, which I wrote in 1997.
Click on the Liturgical Calendar on the sidebar, then on that page, click on the Sunday/feast you are seeking, and you will find .pdf's to Introits, Psalms, Alleluias, Offertories, and Communions for all those days.

Now working on the Sunday XIV and beyond! Stay tuned!
