Hymn suggestions for the 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year C (Sunday 11 September 2016)

Hymns and songs, based on themes from the Roman Catholic lectionary for the twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time in Year C

Most are free-to-use (ie public domain or copyright-free), meaning the words can be copied and sung to at least one tune with no concerns about copyright or performance licensing - sometimes in a limited setting.  Many such hymns are old/traditional - but where possible a variety of styles and genres are included.

A small selection of copyright hymns may also be included, if they are particularly relevant.

Seasonal note

In some countries, the feast of the The Exaltation of the Holy Cross replaces the Sunday of Ordinary time when it falls on 14-September. Check your local liturgical calendar for details.
