June 9 Whitsunday (Pentecost)
St. Michael the Archangel Anglican Church
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.
Be it known to all who enter this Holy Place, that the Blessed Sacrament of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ is reserved in the Tabernacle. A genuflection, being the proper reverence before His Presence, is expected of all the faithful. Leave not without worshiping and adoring Him upon His Altar Throne.

Prelude Komm, Gott, Schöpfer, heiliger Geist J. S. Bach
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), German Baroque composer and organist, wrote his setting of the chorale Komm, Gott Schöpfer with the tune in the soprano and afterwards in the bass. This 16th century tune is a simplified adaptation by Martin Luther of the chant Veni Creator Spiritus.
The Spirit of the Lord filleth the world: Hallelujah. (Psalm 68:3) Let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice. Hallelujah. (Psalm 68:1) Let God arise, let His enemies be scattered: let them also that hate Him flee before Him.
(Psalm 68:28b-29) Strengthen, O God, that which Thou hast wrought for us. Because of Thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto Thee.
Veni Creator Spiritus Alec Wyton/Malcolm Archer
The communion hymn #217, the chant Veni Creator Spiritus (Come, Holy Ghost), is attributed to the ninth century German Benedictine monk Rhabanus Maurus. It is associated with Pentecost (Whitsunday) and with ordinations. Alec Wyton (1921-2007) created this meditative setting while organist-choirmaster at New York’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine. Malcolm Archer (b.1952), English organ/choral composer, was organist/director at Wells Cathedral and St. Paul’s Cathedral.
Postlude Postlude on “Salve feste dies” Charles Callahan
The processional hymn “Hail thee, festival day” (whose Latin title is in the Prelude) is a 6th century Latin poem with verses appropriate for Easter, Ascension and Pentecost. The author is Venatius Honorius Fortunatus, an Italian priest and bishop of Poitiers, France. Charles Callahan (b.1951), Vermont choral/organ composer, uses the refrain in his concluding piece in his set of variations.
The term “Whitsunday” is a contraction of White Sunday, an English term used since the Norman Conquest (A.D. 1066) for Pentecost (50 days after Easter) when white vestments were worn by catechumens being baptized that day. One interpretation (John Mirk, 15th century monk) is that the root of the word was “wit” (wyt, wytte), signifying the wisdom of the Holy Ghost on Christ’s disciples.
