Church Bulletin (blog edition) Lent II 3 17 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.

Holy Communion:

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.

Erbarm dich mein, o Herre Gott                                                                J. S. Bach


(Psalm 25:6) Remember, O Lord, Thy tender mercies and Thy loving kindnesses: for they have been ever of old. (Psalm 25:2c) Let not mine enemies triumph over me: (Psalm 34:17) God of Israel, deliver us out of all our troubles. (Psalm 25:1-2b) Unto Thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul: O my God, I trust in Thee; let me not be ashamed.


(Psalm 119:47-48a) I will delight myself in Thy commandments which I have loved. My hands also will I lift up unto Thy commandments, which I have loved.

Prelude on St. Flavian                                                                                Flor Peeters


Expression #1 in G                                                                                   Jean Langlais

Today is the second Sunday of Lent, a penitential season of 40 days that began on Ash Wednesday. The Alleluia and the Gloria in Excelsis are omitted until Maundy Thursday during Holy Week. The name for this Sunday is the Latin term Reminiscere, from the Introit for today from Psalm 25:6 “Reminiscere miserationum tuarum, Domine.”

The chorale prelude by Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) is a setting of a 1524 tune by Johann Walter set to a translation of Psalm 51.

Flor Peeters (1903-1986) was organist for St. Rombault’s Cathedral in Mechelen, Belgium and a director at the Royal Conservatory. His setting of the tune St. Flavian (#59, “Lord, who throughout these forty days”) places the tune between interludes.

The Recessional Hymn is a 1933 poem set to an Irish folk tune Slane, which is a hill near Tara where St. Patrick (c.389-461) lit his Easter Even fire challenging King Loegaire.

Jean Langlais (1907-1991), French composer who was organist at St. Clothilde in Paris, composed his “expressions” in 1987 as music for the service. This one uses traditional tonal language with added chromatic notes on contrasting flute stops.

Everyone wants to help take care of their church, but your available time is not always when the church schedules time.  So during this time of Lent or after, go to the sign-up board:  put your name by a job(s) and let me know when you plan to be here (day or night).


Our Yard Sale will be taking place in early June.  Sylvia Anderson has agreed to line baskets with pretty fabric for us to sell during this sale.  If you have baskets that you no longer need, please bring them to the church ASAP so she will have time to work on them!!!
