Church Bulletin for 4th Sunday after Easter – May 19 2019

Church Bulletin for 4th Sunday after Easter – May 19 2019

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 worshipping and adoring Him upon His Altar Throne.

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.

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                  Fugue in D                                                                              J. S. Bach

A fugue is defined as a composition in which a theme is introduced in one part and imitated at different pitch levels. This fugue is one of a number of pieces attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) for which no autograph manuscript survives.


(Psalm 98:1-2)  O sing unto the Lord a new song; for He hath done marvellous things. The Lord hath made known His salvation: His righteousness hath He openly showed in the sight of the heathen. His right hand, and His holy arm, hath gotten Him the victory.

As during Lent, each Sunday in Eastertide has a Latin name from the first words of the Introit. The name for the Fourth Sunday of Easter is Cantate, taken from Psalm 98:1: “Cantate Domino canticum novum.”


(Psalm 66:1-2a, 16) Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands:  sing forth the honor of His name, come and hear, all ye that fear God, and I will declare what he hath done for my soul.

Schmücke dich, o liebe Seele                              Johannes Brahms

Brahms (1833-1897), German composer of symphonies, choral and piano music, wrote his piece on the 17th century Lutheran communion hymn (#210 in The Hymnal 1940) in a group of 11 organ preludes during his last year.

Postlude                 Laudation                                                              Gilbert M. Martin

Gilbert M. Martin (b.1941), graduate of Westminster Choir College (John Apple’s alma mater) and composer of organ and choral music, wrote this joyful piece with the title from the Latin word for “praise.”
