Worship Materials at St. Anthony's
For the past few years at St. Anthony’s, we have used the Seasonal Missals and an annual Music Issue. The publisher has informed us that only the large print edition will be available beginning in 2016. the large print edition is truly much easier to read. However, the down side to that for us is that our racks are not large enough to hold this new edition. The publisher also has other formats available including a missal called Breaking Bread. This publication has all of the Sunday readings and music currently in the publications that we use. However, they will all be in one book that will be used for the whole year. So, after thinking about all the options open to us and knowing that the current racks will not accommodate what is available to us, I decided to opt for Breaking Bread. The change will occur on the first Sunday of Advent. In the mean time, I will discuss with the liturgy committee various options for placing the missals in the pews. Breaking Bread will also replace the Heritage Missal currently in use at St. Patrick's.
