Note from Fr. Michael:

Our website  is a major source of information, communication, as hours are spent weekly posting articles and information for our church and of our faith.  To give you an idea of what can found, just in our blog section (which you go to through the homepage), the following has been added just this past week:

  1. Lord’s Prayer: changes suggested by Pope Francis are discussed as the “AND LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION” verse is reflected upon via scripture and Anglican thought.
  2. Next weekly calendar (week of June 30th) is posted and is expandable, so viewable on phone.
  3. The Weekly Bulletin blog edition.
  4. Musical Notes.
  5. Readings for the upcoming week
  6. Video of latest 10:30 service.

This website acts as a “news – letter” and is updated every week and should be visited weekly, if possible, by the congregation.  Everything from the new “Confirmation Class” workbook to articles and postings on seasonal topics to theological discussions, all can be found.  It is there for you, please use it.


Prelude                                Prelude in G                                                                     John Zundel


(Psalm 13:5-6) O Lord, I have trusted in Thy mercy: my heart shall rejoice in Thy salvation. I will sing unto the Lord, because He hath dealt bountifully with me. (Psalm 13:1) How long wilt Thou forget me, O Lord: how long wilt Thou hide Thy face from me?


(Psalm 5:2) Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for

unto Thee will I pray.

Prelude in F                                                                        John Zundel

Postlude              Prelude in C                                                                        John Zundel

Johannes (John) Zundel (1815-1882), born near Stuttgart, Germany, emigrated to New York, where he was organist for Plymouth Congregational Church in Brooklyn. In 1870, he wrote the hymn tune Beecher (today’s sermon hymn), named for Henry Ward Beecher, renown pastor there. He composed these preludes in 1848 when organs in America were beginning to have a pedal keyboard of up to two octaves.

NOTE:  We will begin today to sing the Psalm on a semi-regular basis. The book of Psalms is the hymnal of the Bible, containing poetry intended to be sung. The music that is being used is a method of singing non-metrical texts, known as Anglican chant. (Anglican chant began in churches during the 16th century English Reformation as an outgrowth of plainchant) Our introduction is by chanting in speech rhythm on a single pitch to a second adjacent pitch on the last word at the end of the phrase (the asterisk or the end of the verse).
