Hey everyone. Sometimes I go to a week day Mass at a parish near me and the priest leads the congregation in the Hail Mary either directly after the Liturgy of the Word or at the very beginning of the Liturgy of the Eucharist. I am not exactly sure where it is that we say this at but I know it’s around in that area. Anyway, is this acceptable? Also, he leads the congregation in the Saint Michael the Archangel prayer after Mass has ended and he is going back to the sacristy. Please help!
Another thing is that he says at the end of the prayer intentions, “If anyone wishes to add their own intentions, you may do so now.” and the congregation will add their own intentions verbally and then everyone says “Lord, hear our prayer.” Is this allowed?
