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.)

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 Christ ist erstanden Hans Buchner
Hans Buchner (1483-1538) was a contemporary of Martin Luther and was organist at the cathedral in Constance, southern Germany. Around 1525, he composed one of the earliest pieces on the 11th century German chorale “Christ ist erstanden” (Christ is arisen).
(Psalm 66:2-3) Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands: sing forth the honor of His name: make His praise glorious. Say unto God, how terrible art Thou in Thy works: through the greatness of Thy power shall Thine enemies submit themselves unto Thee.
As during Lent, each Sunday in Eastertide has a Latin name from the first words of the Introit. The name for the Third Sunday of Easter is Jubilate from Psalm 66:1: “Jubilate Deo omnis terra.”
(Psalm 146:1b-2) Praise the Lord, O my soul. While I live will I praise the Lord: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being. Hallelujah.
Anthem: Now the Green Blade Riseth Simon Andrews
The tune for the anthem is originally a late 15th century French carol, Noel Nouvelet. John Macleod Campbell Crum, an English Anglican priest, published his poem in 1928 that compared the resurrection of Christ to wheat and grain that sprouts after lying dormant in the ground. The anthem placing the tune against a rhythmic ostinato (repeated musical figure) is composed by Simon Warren Andrews (b.1958), English composer and musician in Pennsylvania.
Postlude The Strife is O’er Alec Wyton
The processional hymn and postlude are the mid-19th century Easter hymn. The poem is an 1859 translation of the 1695 Jesuit Latin poem. The tune was created in 1861 by William Monk (editor of the English hymnal Hymns Anceint and Modern) from a Magnificat by the Italian Renaissance composer Palestrina. The organ setting are by Alec Wyton (1921-2007), English organist-choirmaster at New York’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine.
