Two songs for Chinese New Year Mass

Dear students,

Please play the music files and listen to the singing as much as you can.

The first song is “天主經-Our Father”, and the second song is “全心感謝-Thanks With All Our Heart” sung for the Entrance Hymn. We are going to sing them at the school Mass as special thanksgiving of Chinese New Year in the morning, Feb. 3.

The more you listen and practice, the better you can sing more confidently and beautifully. All your hard work will praise and glorify our God Father. HE will be very very pleased to hear your singing.

Cheers,

Hsu Laoshi
