Donations welcomed for purchase of new hymn books

We are planning to update our hymn books and welcome any donations towards the cost of purchasing these.

Since the new translation of the Roman Missal and accompanying music, our existing hymn books have become out of date. The new edition produced by the publishers in 2012 has also included new hymns and excluded existing ones; in some instances the hymn numbers have changed.

Our choir members have asked if we would purchase the latest edition so that everyone can sing – literally – from the “same hymn sheet”.

The total cost of replacing the People’s and Music Edition is £2,300. It may be that someone who can afford it would like to make this their gift to the parish or contribute in a small way towards the cost.

Fr Tom said: “May I express my deepest appreciation to all involved in the Music Ministry in our Parish and to the parishioner who has donated £1,000 gift aided towards the cost.”
