Alleluia in Lent

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  Could you please clarify if it is permissible to sing Alleluia during the Wedding (Mass) in Lent? The Gloria is sung, however I’m unsure of Alleluia.  Thank you, and have a blessed Lent.


A:  The alleluia is silenced throughout Lent, including weddings, confirmations, St. Joseph’s Day and the Annunciation when these fall within the season. The Gloria is expected on certain occasions, but the alleluia, never.
