Ideas for Lent

Notes from the Z Files

OK, I know it's late to plan too much, but here are some liturgy ideas for Lent, which started March 1st (Ash Wednesday):

* No Gloria nor Alleluias during Lent, but you can sing "Lord Have Mercy" – Kyrie (I love Matt Maher's) -- just remember to coordinate with your priest on when to come in playing – in fact, coordinate with your priest on ALL this stuff. :)
* Along those lines, we sometimes omit the opening hymn altogether and have a silent procession or sing the Kyrie as the procession. (Priest may do the Greeting from the back of Church).
* For the Lenten Gospel Acclamation, I never tire of doing Michael W. Smith's "Thy Word" (SS 211). (I'm sure there are some other great ones.) Read more »
