And now, time for something completely different.

All services are the ordinary form unless specified. For 'low mass', I mean just one server, no sung ordinary or propers. For 'sung mass', I mean at least four servers, incense, sung ordinary and propers plus motets and hymns. For 'solemn high mass', I mean two concelebrants or deacons, or deacon and acolyte besides the celebrant. Five mass servers plus four torchbearers, incense, sung ordinary and propers plus motets and hymns.

I've never been keen on these late youth masses. I'm usually dead asleep by then. Honestly, I dragged myself to evening masses during the school term only because it was my only option.

Expecting a lot of people at your Rural Parish?
I'm surprised about Motets being sung at your Rural Parish too!

Thanks for linking :D

One of the rural pasishes here (I think it was St.Helena's) Is a pretty large parish, despite being practically in the middle of nowhere. I'm basing 'rural parish' on somewhere around 60-70 people per sunday, so two masses seem okay.

And motets aren't all hard. Just Google 'St.Gregory Hymnal'.Most of those are single voice or for two voices.

You're welcome. <3
