Regular Mass Settings

Regular Mass Settings

The Diocese of Jefferson City is encouraging all parishioners to be familiar with three Mass settings:

1. The Chant Mass from the Roman Missal

2. The revised Mass of Creation

3. The Mass of St. Frances Cabrini by Kevin Keil

This does not prohibit parishes from using other Mass settings, but for all to be familiar with at least these three to create a common repertoire for diocesan or deanery-wide liturgies.

Bishop W. Shawn McKnight would like all the parishes to use this Lent to become familiar with the Mass of St. Frances Cabrini as it is a setting intended for use in larger, more festive or solemn diocesan liturgies.

Since the Gloria is not used during Lent (apart from a few Solemnities), please also make use of the Cabrini Gloria during Easter Time, too.  This is specifically to prepare for the Mass of Rededication at the Cathedral of St. Joseph on May 5, when that setting will be used.

This is a youtube link to listen to the setting:

And this is a link to the OCP website where the music may be purchased, if needed:

Please share this with your Parish Musicians.
