I just became a new member of of our Parish Council (Bossier City, Louisiana). I had the privilege to sit in on the last council meeting of the year. I was able to meet the current members and some who honorably served the council and were stepping down from it. They are a devoted group of catholic parishioners, I was honored to be among them.
I sat there listening ans was trying to figure out what my roll as a council member was going to be. As I listened to the agenda items, one of the items was presented the the members for discussion. Which I never thought was an issue among the parishioners. The question to the members dealt with the “Glory Be.” The current version of the “Glory Be” song it’s difficult to follow and if you miss a note it becomes even more difficult to re-join the song.
So, my question is, are their different versions of the “Glory Be” and where can I find then. We need to use one version that will be easier for the whole parish to sing. The other option is since our Parishioners aren’t comfortable singing the current “Glory Be”, should we go back to reciting it the “Glory Be”?
Thanks in advance for any comments or suggestions,
