Dear St. Agnes family,
This week marked the beginning of Holy Week.  I’ve to send you the lists of music with links to recordings all in one email, beginning with Palm Sunday and concluding with Easter Sunday.  When searching for the video for Alleluia, Alleluia, our sending forth song for Easter Sunday, I came upon this video by the All Generations Ensemble of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish in Green Bay, WI. Years ago before I came to St. Agnes, I gave a workshop for the Diocese of Green Bay and joined what I believe may have been this ensemble (although the youth then would have been adults now for a long time) at a Mass.  I was inspired to see youth and adult music ministers sharing their gifts together at Mass.  This inspiration helped form the vision I’ve shared all these years at St. Agnes.  God is amazing!
Wishing everyone a very blessed Holy Week and Easter Season!
Bobby Fisher, Director of Music Ministries
