Trinity I – V 2018

Hosted by: St Michael's Church and Choir

The Liturgical Year enters Ordinary Time. At St Michael’s we use Sundays after Trinity to keep in step with the Plainsong Propers that choir and congregation sing at the Introit, Gradual, Offertory and Communion points in the Mass.

Here are the dates and music for the first five Sundays after Trinity this year, 2018. We hope you can join us in worship, prayer and fellowship.

The words of this thrilling piece – Insanae et vanae curae invadunt mentes nostras, saepe furore replent corda, privata spe, Quid prodest O mortalis conari pro mundanis, si coelos negligas, Sunt fausta tibi cuncta, si Deus est pro te.

Translate as – Insane & vain cares invade our minds, often raging fills the heart, deprived of hope. What profit, O Mortal, to strive for the worldly if you neglect the heavens. All things are favourable to you, if God is for you.
