St. Lucy Commentator Training September 2015 Agenda The Role of the Commentator in the Mass Expectations of the Commentator Training Attendance and Substitutions Spiritual Preparation Technical Preparation Practicum At the Beginning of Mass At the Prayers of the Faithful After Mass Q&A

2 The Role of the Commentator in the Mass The commentator.. if appropriate, provides the faithful briefly with explanations and exhortations so as to direct their attention to the celebration and ensure that they are better disposed for understanding it. The commentators remarks should be thoroughly prepared and notable for their restraint. In performing this function the commentator stands in a suitable place within sight of the faithful, but not at the ambo GENERAL INSTRUCTION OF THE ROMAN MISSAL Copyright 2011, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Washington, DC. All rights reserved http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/the-mass/general-instruction-of-the-roman-missal/girm-chapter-3.cfm Servers, lectors commentators, and members of the choir also exercise a genuine liturgical function. They ought, therefore, to discharge their office with the sincere piety and decorum demanded by so exalted a ministry and rightly expected of them by God's people. Consequently they must all be deeply imbued with the spirit of the liturgy, each in his own measure, and they must be trained to perform their functions in a correct and

orderly manner.

Dress appropriately Arrive at church 10-15 minutes before Mass Sign in on the sign-in sheet for that date/Mass and make sure the Mass Coordinator knows you have arrived Find the appropriate page in the Commentators book Review the commentator materials. Make sure of the correct pronunciation of any words/peoples names that are not familiar to you (you can ask the priest or other folks in the Sacristy for help) After Commentating: Solicit feedback regarding how the commentating went (e.g with a friend, family members, the other commentator) to see where improvements can be made 5 Practicum At the Beginning of Mass Wait in the entry way to the Sacristy on the Lectern side of the Church

Wait for the bells that announce Mass to begin ringing As the bells are ringing make your way to the Lectern. There is no need to bow as you approach the Lectern. When the bells finish ringing, make the opening announcements according to the script in the Commentator book As the parishioners are welcoming each other to the Mass, proceed to your seat in the congregation, taking the Commentator book with you. There is no need for you to bow as you leave the Lectern.

6 Practicum At the Prayers of the Faithful At the end of the Profession of Faith, as the congregation is saying I believe in the Holy Catholic Church proceed to the front of the pews on the Lectern side of the Church As the Presider says the introductory prayer to the Prayers of the Faithful, proceed to the Lectern. There is no need to bow as you approach the Lectern. When the Presider completes the introductory prayer, reverently read the Prayers of the Faithful

Stay at the Lectern until the Presider completes the closing prayer to the Prayers of the Faithful. Take the Commentator book back to the Sacristy and put it away on the bookshelf, then return to your place in the congregation. There is no need to bow as you leave the Lectern. 7 Resources & Q and A Commentator Training and Questions: Rita Gray [email protected] (408)605-4083 8
