If we’re keeping on going with the existing plan for a sung Mass once a month at Lawson, next Sunday will be a practice for the first Sunday of Lent.

Notice the words of the offertory and communion are almost identical, which argues for doing the proper chant - otherwise they will sound exactly the same.
Update: Here’s the plan sung by my son and me:
