Fifth Sunday in Lent plus more

From Deacon Ron Reno:

We will be blessed to have Father Andrews and Anneliese for Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week. David and Julie will be here also for another two weeks before they travel back to Michigan. Father will have two acolytes and a Deacon serving this week. God will be pleased that all of His children are doing His work. God willing, our little group will do Mathew 27: The Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ. It will be a challenge but we can do it for the glory of God.

We finished our annual meeting last week. All officers were chosen and our budget was approved.

The offertory anthem ”Eripe Me Domine” by the choir was exceptional and the communion anthem “Stabat Mater Dolorosa” was equally exceptional. Thank you Nick, Julia, Lynda and Julie sharing your God given talents with us. It is so wonderful to have music with the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts.

WE beseech thee, Almighty God, mercifully to look upon thy people; that by thy goodness they may be governed and preserved evermore, both in body and soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hates nothing that thou hast made, and dost forgive the sins of all who are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

We are planning for a Good Friday service as well as a Saturday Easter Service for Holy Week. Father’s homily was exceptional; please take time to read it. God bless, Deacon
