Blank music team rota, Nov 2021 to Jan 2022

This is a printable music-team roster for  the period November 2021 to January 2022. It has:
  • One row for each Sunday in this period, labelled with the corresponding feast from the Irish liturgical calendar, and notes about other observances that day or in the coming week.
  • Two columns with the dates and names of the feast or liturgical calendar day.
  • Three columns for your use.  These are labelled Co-ordinator, Musician(s), Audio-visual.  Change them to suit your (eg you may need Choir Cantor, Animator, Organist, Worship Leader, etc)

Things to note in this time period

November is the last month of the church year:  It starts with All Saints and All Souls days, and goes through to Christ the King.  Traditionally, this month is when the church prays for the deceased.   The first Sunday in Advent falls in the last week of November.  December includes several significant feats, including the Immaculate Conception, and Our Lady of Guadalaupe.  This year, Christmas Day is on Saturday - so for church musicians this may mean Christmas Eve services on Friday, Christmas Day on Saturday and then a regular Sunday on Sunday.    January is included in this planning calendar so that teams can plan for the post-Christmas period well in advance - this is especially important in teh southern hemisphere were many take extended summer breaks.

Why this three month period

Planning in these three-month periods fits both the liturgical and secular seasons:
  • Feb - Mar - April (includes Lent and Easter)
  • May - Jun - Jul (spring / summer in Europe, winter in the southern hemisphere)
  • Aug - Sept - Oct (Back-to-school = start of a new year in Europe)
  • Nov - Dec - Jan (New Year and summer-holidays in the south, people get together in late January to plan for the rest of the year).

If this combination doesn't suit your church, then it may be better to use the blank music roster template.

The next version, for February - April will be available in mid  January.  Please leave a message in the Comments section near the bottom of the page if you have requests about what it should include.
