Praenotanda September/October 2014 Issue
View this email in your browser


Welcome to Praenotanda! Praenotanda is a Latin word meaning “to foretell” or “announce before-hand.”  The term is frequently used in reference to the introductory information provided in the Latin edition of ritual books. The goal and purpose of Praenotanda, News and Notes from the Offices of Liturgy and Music is to provide useful information to those responsible for liturgical leadership in the churches and parishes of the Diocese of Orlando.  This bimonthly e-letter will be linked to the diocesan E-Scroll publication when it is initially published and subsequently, it will be accessible through the Liturgy and Music page at the diocesan website.  It is our hope that Praenotanda will be a valuable source of timely information. 

Bruce Croteau, Director of Liturgy
