Welcome to Fall & New Music

Fall has arrived and October is now upon us.  With everyone settling into a regular routine, we at St. Barnabas hope and pray that this season be one of joy and grace.

In addition, over the next two months, you will notice some differences as our community, in union with the whole English-speaking Church, transition to the use of the 3rd Edition of the Roman Missal.  What we say at Mass will see some changes, but also in what we sing.  In order to help, below you will find a link to the new musical setting for the "Glory to God in the highest" which is sung on Sunday Masses outside of Advent and Lent.  Our parish will begin using this musical setting prior to Advent, when it will not be sung or said.  Thus, when the joy of Christmas is upon us, we hopefully will be able to catch on and sing along.

Please click on the link below to listen to an mp3 version of the new music.
