Catholics/Sign of the Cross during Mass


When are the different times one should make the sign of the cross during the Mass?

At the Traditional Latin Mass (the New Order service is not truly a Mass), one would make the Sign of the Cross at the beginning of the Mass with the priest, at the Absolution (Indulgentiam, absolutionem, etc.) following the Confiteor of the server(s), and at the Benediction before the Last Gospel.
