Church Bulletin Blog Edition May 5 2019
Visitors – Welcome
Peace and joy in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Please advise us of your visit and ask for a “First Time Visitor Bulletin” which briefly explains the communion service. Please join our church family in the Parish Hall after the service for fellowship, drinks, and food.
If you have been confirmed by a Bishop in Apostolic Succession, you are invited to receive the Blessed Sacrament. If not, but are a Baptized Christian, please come to the Altar Rail for a blessing (simply cross your arms over your chest when the Celebrant approaches.) If you have questions, please speak to the clergy.

Still looking for kitchen help for the 1st, 2nd & 4th Sundays.
The Annual Yard Sale held at St. Michaels will take place on June 1 from 8AM to 12 noon! Previously, another date was circulating in error.
This sale requires a lot of preparation and work! Hopefully, many of you will sign up at the back of the parish hall and offer to help. After sign up, you can recruit a team for help in sorting, pricing and selling.
This year we are breaking up the sale into categories such as; toys, garden, electronics, plants, household, jewelry, books, furniture, tools and Christmas. We do not want any clothes, but linens are OK!
I would like the volunteer to be present and in charge of the category you selected on the sale day! Men are particularly encouraged (pretty please) to help with the tools and electronics. Sometimes we get some strange or heavier items and need help!
Items are now allowed to be brought into the parish hall. Remaining unsold items will be picked up by the Kidney Foundation.
We will have donuts and coffee available for the workers.
Any help will be appreciated!!
Thank you in advance for helping us out!! It is for our church1! Any questions please call.
Prelude This Joyful Eastertide David Polley
David Polley (b.1953), music director at Grace Episcopal Church, Georgetown, Texas, created his organ setting of this hymn using two contrasting flute stops with a flowing accompaniment against the tune.
(Psalm 33:5b-6a) The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord: by the word of the Lord were the heavens made. (Psalm 33:1) Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.
As during Lent, each Sunday in Eastertide has a Latin name from the first words of the Introit. The name for the Second Sunday of Easter is Misericordias Domini from Psalm 33:5b: “Misericordia Domini plena est terra.”
(Psalm 63:1a, 4b) O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: I will lift up my hands in Thy name.
Anthem: This Joyful Eastertide
This Easter hymn has an evolution over three centuries. The tune, originating as a 17th century love song from the Netherlands, became a hymn tune in 1685 when it was published in the Netherlands in Joachim Oudaen’s David’s Psalmen. George Ratcliffe Woodward, an Anglican priest who translated Greek, Latin and German hymns into English, published a collection Carols for Easter and Ascension (1894) that included this poem. He collaborated with Charles Wood, an Irish composer who wrote the harmonization of the tune. The frequent rising of the melody coincides with the theme of the resurrection of Christ.
Postlude Victory (“The Strife is O’er”) Robin Dinda
Robin Dinda (b.1959), Massachusetts composer/organist and graduate of Davidson College, wrote his festive setting of this Easter hymn that places the tune (adapted from the Renaissance composer Palestrina) in the manuals and pedals.
