Mass for the Fallen on ANZAC Day

ACBA_Mass-for-the-Fallen-logoMass for the Fallen will be incorporated into the National ANZAC Day Mass at St Christopher’s Cathedral, Canberra, on Monday 25 April 2016 at 8am.

Mass for the Fallen was commissioned by Allan and Maria Myers for use in celebrations of the Eucharist on Anzac Day, particularly the 100th Anniversary in 2015 but also over the centenary period from 2014 to 2018.

Parishes throughout Australia are invited to incorporate the Mass, or parts thereof, in the Anzac Day liturgy this year.

The mass setting was composed by Christopher Willcock SJ and it comprises a setting of the Kyrie eleison, the Acclamations during the Eucharistic Prayer, and the Agnus Dei.

The bishops conference website includes a list of all cathedrals and parishes where Mass for the Fallen will be sung during the ANZAC day weekend. You are welcome to add your parish to this list on our website.
