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.

Prelude La Contemplation Eugene Thayer
(Psalm 31:2b-3) Be Thou my strong Rock: for an house of defense to save me. Thou art my Rock and my Fortress: therefore for Thy Name’s sake lead me and guide me. (Psalm 31:1) In Thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in Thy righteousness.
(Psalm 119:12-13) Blessed art Thou, O Lord; teach me Thy statutes. With my lips have I declared all the judgments of Thy mouth.
Canzonetta Dieterich Buxtehude
Music during Communion
Communion René L. Becker
Fugue in D J. S. Bach
Today is the third Sunday of a 17-day period of preparation for the season of Lent (that will begin on Ash Wednesday), a tradition that goes back to the late 6th century. The Alleluia and the Gloria in Excelsis are omitted until Maundy Thursday during Holy Week. The names that are given to each of these three Sundays are Latin words representing the number of days prior to Easter. The term for this Sunday is Quinquagesima (the Latin word for the number 50), 50 days before Easter.
Whitney Eugene Thayer (1838-1889) was one of America’s earliest concert organists and organ teachers. “The Contemplation” (subtitled Offertoire for Vox Humana), published in 1870, contrasts a soft reed with flutes.
Dieterich Buxtehude (1637-1707), North German organist and composer, composed this canzonetta (a short imitative piece) that uses groups of repeated notes.
René Louis Becker (1882-1956) was born in Alsace, a region between France and Germany. He lived in America most of his life as a teacher and organist in St. Louis and Blessed Sacrament Cathedral in Detroit. This composition presents a reflective mood while meditating in a sacred space during the Eucharist.
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) composed many pieces for organ and harpsichord using a form known as a fugue (a piece based on a single theme (subject) that is imitated at various pitch levels against a 2nd theme (countersubject). This fugue is possibly an early work of Bach.
