Gregorian Propers: Mass for the Church (Masses for various occasions)

    I was wondering if anyone might have any idea what propers should be sung for the first Mass found in the section of the Missal called "Masses for various occasions"? This would be Masses "for the Church/particular Church". In the graduale this corresponding section (missae ad diversa) seems to skip over the Masses for the Church and instead begins with Mass "for the Pope," unless I am missing something?

    Would it make sense to use propers for the dedication of Church? Thanks!

    I've attached the pages from the Ordo Cantus Missae that provide you with the options.

    Page 132 directs you to an appendix on page 169, which is the second page in the attached file.

    Thanks, really appreciate your help. Odd that those suggestions didn't make it to the gradual and when it was published a few years later.
