Meanwhile in Michigan...

Quite a development in the Diocese of Marquette, where Bishop John Doerfler has issued Sing To The Lord, All The Earth!, an instruction on sacred music in divine worship. By the end of 2020, all parishes and schools in the diocese will learn and use in Mass:

  • The English ordinaries of the Roman Missal;
  • The Missa Iubilate Deo Kyrie, Sanctus, and Agnus Dei; and
  • The English Communion Antiphons in a simple tone.
The diocese will also create its own hymnal "to ensure the musical quality and doctrinal integrity of the Sacred Music." Read more about the changes here.

The Diocese of Marquette encompasses the sparsely-populated Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where inhabitants fondly refer to themselves as Yoopers and those from the rest of the Great Lakes State as Trolls.
