The pastor and I have talked about phasing out the verbal announcement of music: something we both want to see. (I know what a few of you are thinking: there are visually impaired folks in the pews who cannot see these numbers. We’re not abandoning these people.)
A parishioner and friend, Paul, crafted this board and its twin on the other side of our nave. Up till now, we’ve had two catalogue-bought, four-line boards. Now we have an excellent upgrade. Paul gave us ten lines for music–and no jokes about the Ten Commandments, please. Note the board can fold up in the middle and be tucked back along the wall.
We now have full silent announcement capability: entrance, gloria, psalm, alleluia, and preparation on the left panel, with Mass setting, Lamb of God (need to move the “L” over) & two communion songs (or no Lamb and three) and exit on the other.
