to come forward in the usual way to receive Holy Communion.
All others, including our non-Catholic guests, may remain in their

COMMUNION ANTIPHON (ALL MASSES) Sedebit Dominus Rex PSALM
POSTCOMMUNION (11:00AM) JESU, THE VERY THOUGHT OF THEE PAUL
Jesus, the very thought of Thee With sweetness fills my breast; But
sweeter far Thy face to see, And in Thy presence rest. No voice can
sing, nor heart can frame Nor can the memory find A sweeter sound
than Thy blest Name, O Saviour of mankind! O hope of every contrite
heart, O joy of all the meek, To those who fall how kind Thou art,
good to those who seek! But what to those who find? Ah this no
tongue nor pen can show; The love of Jesus, what it is None but His
loved ones know. Jesu, our only joy be Thou, As Thou our prize wilt
be; In Thee be all our glory now, And through eternity. In Thee be
all our glory now, And through eternity. Amen.

—Cantors are needed for the 5:00pm Saturday Mass. Repertoire is
straightforward, but an audition
is required. We hope the schedule so that everyone in the rotation
sings once a month. Thank you!
—We have started the St. Cecilia Choir with the encouragement of
Bishop Raica. The St. Cecil-
ia Choir is a new choral group at the Cathedral which helps lead
singing at the 8:30am Mass, usually
celebrated by our diocesan Bishop, the Most Reverend Steven J.
Raica. It provides a quality choral experi-
ence with rehearsal and repertoire demands less than that of
Cathedral Choir. Rehearsal is Wednes-
day at 5:15pm: come join us !
—If you enjoy singing and can read music, please consider joining
Cathedral Choir, which leads sing-
ing at the 11:00am Mass and holy days throughout the year. This
Christmas, we will present Dvorak’s
Mass in D in its original version for organ and choir (likely a
Birmingham premiere!) A thorough de-
scription of the ensemble can be found at
www.stpaulsbhm.org/sacred-music. Please contact the Director
of Music, Bruce Ludwick, Jr., for more information! You will love
being a part of this hard-working, yet
