I have question about the Gloria and Creed. In my missal, for the Mass for the Immaculate Conception, there was a note that the Gloria and the Creed are to be said. I went to my local parish for Mass today and we said the Creed but not the Gloria. I figured, “Oh, it’s Advent, so that’s why we didn’t say it.” But then I remembered that during Ordinary Time, there would be feast days of apostles (such as the Solemnity of Sts. Peter & Paul) where the Gloria and Creed were to be said, and we didn’t say the Gloria then either. This was at a different parish too.
So I’m wondering is it a problem that the Gloria was not said? I also wonder why; maybe I’ll have to ask the priest/liturgy director to find out.
