I have three questions.
What sort of music do you often hear at Mass? Contemporary praise and worship--like Matt Maher and Hillsong? The folksy stuff from the 70's and 80's? Latin and chant? Traditional with hymns and organ?
How young or old is your parish? A lot of families? Young adults? Seniors?
Is it an urban or suburban parish? Rural?
It all depends on which Mass you attend. :shrug:
The one Saturday evening is mostly contemporary music, lots of Dan Schutte. It is mostly older families.
Sunday, early morning is traditional with mostly chant with lots of Latin. It is mostly families with teens that don't attend CYO.
Sunday, late morning is very contemporary. And attracts families with young children. This Mass is packed. Standing room only.
Sunday, early evening, is, well, I really don't know. :o I haven't been to that Mass for a while. It attracts teens that attend CYO and is staffed by teens. (Staffed meaning, they are the readers, ushers, altar servers.)
Sunday late night is, again, I don't know. :o I have only attended that Mass twice. It is mostly college students and is "staffed" by college students.
Our parish is in a town of about 50,000 people. The parish has 1,000 families plus 2,000 students.
