New Hymn composed for Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral

09-16-2016

Bishop Burbidge commissioned Mr. Michael Accurso, Director of our Diocesan Office of Liturgical Music, to compose a hymn for the dedication of our new Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral. The hymn entitled, “I Will Praise Your Name Forever,” is now complete and will be introduced as part of the liturgical music repertoire in our parishes throughout the coming year in preparation for it to be sung during the entrance procession for the Mass of Dedication for our new Cathedral on July 26, 2017 and in future diocesan events.

The hymn will be available in the eight languages that represent the diverse cultures which contribute to the life of our Diocese: English, Spanish, French, Swahili, Igbo, Vietnamese, Korean, and Tagalog.

Please note that the refrain of the hymn is listed in English, so that all of the faithful of our Diocese may fully participate when this hymn is sung for the Mass of Dedication and other Diocesan events.
