There were a few missteps (by both pastor and people) a few blunders, mistakes, and stumbles, but -for the most part- the first use of the Third Edition of the Roman Missal went smoothly. Matt Fodor, OLP Music Director, prepared a small booklet with the revised prayers of the Mass as well as the music settings we are using at OLP.
Brian Hoover did a short introduction before Mass introducing the new "Breaking Bread" hymnal.
Father Gary sang - rather than recited - the parts of the Mass that called for new responses so that we wouldn't automatically recite the old and familiar responses.
This will take some getting used to, but we are off to a good and solid start at Our Lady of Peace.
