The Mass of the Holy Spirit Resource Kit is now available!
Since 2011 schools, communities and parishes in Australia have been finding that the Mass of the Holy Spirit setting is a powerful tool for engaging young people (and old!) in the Eucharist. Capturing the vibrancy of youth and the beauty of the ancient tradition, this setting has proven to be effective in a wide variety of settings: from the simplest of parish settings with a single guitar or piano and single singer, to a full Cathedral mass with four-part choir, to large youth pilgrimages for thousands of people with full choir and band.
Its balance of simplicity, beauty, vibrancy and solemnity make it accessible and effective for use with old and young congregations alike. It is used in schools, parishes, and communities across Australia and overseas.
"This Mass Setting is beautiful! So anointed!” Fr Rob Galea
To make it even easier to use the setting, the Mass of the Holy Spirit Resource Kit is now available,. Distributed on a USB drive, it contains everything a parish/school/community needs to make it easy for them to use the mass setting, including:
- Full recordings with voice;
- instrumental recordings for those groups that don't have any musicians;
- Sheet music;
- Powerpoints with the melodies to make it easy for congregations to learn the setting;
- and more.
"Stephen Kirk’s Mass of the Holy Spirit setting is a worthy addition to the Church’s treasury of liturgical music. I heartily recommend Stephen’s Mass of the Holy Spirit."

"I really appreciated the usb from Stephen Kirk with music and different files to help out in different parish settings. More of these things really help as resources can be difficult and expensive to come by!” Participant, CYS Music Ministry Day, Sydney, NSW
