Now the green blade rises from the buried grain,
Wheat that in the dark earth many days has lain.
Love lives again, that with the dead has been
Love is come again like wheat arising green.”

TODAY AT ST. MARY’S

10.30 a.m. HOLY COMMUNION with Hymns and Sermon.  Claude Schroeder preaching.

PARISH LIFE NOTES

WELCOMING OF THE NEWLY BAPTIZED. Today we welcome into  the fellowship and Communion of Christ’s Holy Catholic Church, Derek, who was baptized last night and received the laying on of hands with prayer from Bishop Rob.

LIVE AUDIO BROADCAST of today’s service is available on the service page.

TODAY’S ORDER OF SERVICE AND SERMON LINKS:

HOLY WEDNESDAY, 2021

(Modified 2021-04-02: Added recordings of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday service.)

“Spy Wednesday” is one of the traditional titles given to this day at the centre of Holy Week. This was the day Judas met with members of the Sanhedrin in order to betray Jesus to them in exchange for 30 pieces of silver. As the Gospel tells us, “From then on he began looking for a good opportunity to betray Jesus.” (Matthew 24.16)

For a second year in a row, circumstances have conspired to prevent and constrict us from gathering together as a parish family to celebrate the mystery of Jesus’ suffering, death, and resurrection. Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday are properly understood as one church service that stretches over three days, and stands at the heart of our Christian faith and life as a parish community. In an effort to connect us, we will be broadcasting live audio of the upcoming services from St. Mary’s:

Maundy Thursday 5.30 p.m.
Holy Communion with Hymns and Sermon
(Sorry the live stream didn’t work, but here’s the recording, and the text of Beth’s sermon.)

Maundy Thursday service (audio)

Good Friday 12.00 p.m.
Celebration of the Lord’s Passion  with Hymns and Sermon

Good Friday service (audio)

Easter Sunday 10.30 a.m.
Holy Communion with Hymns and Sermon

For those staying at home, please tune in live at these times to join us in prayer and worship, using this player during each of these services:
