Saint Mary's eNEWS for 3.20.16

Saint Mary’s Weekly News

March 20, 2016 – The Sunday of the Passion:  Palm Sunday


 

    The Triduum and Pascha at Saint Mary’s

 

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday

Special Holy Week prayers are offered at 12 Noon in the Chapel.

Maundy Thursday Agape Meal: sign-ups needed

Thursday evening at 6:00 pm. Our Maundy Thursday AgapĂ© Supper and Liturgy is one of our most special liturgies of the year.  We gather for a simple meal of soup, bread, cheese, and fruit. Holy Scripture proclaims the institution of the Lord’s Supper and Jesus’ act of service by washing the feet of his disciples. We re-enact the footwashing.  At the conclusion of the meal, we walk over to the Church for the remainder of the Eucharist, and the stripping and washing of the Altar.

Visit the Sign-Up Table by the Guild Room  where you may indicate if you (and your family/friends) are planning to attend this special event.  You may indicate if you would like to, ahead of time, bring: a block of cheddar or swiss cheese, dried fruit, mixed nuts, juice or wine. Please bring to kitchen or office by Monday, March 21.

 

All-Night Watch of Prayer and Adoration

Maundy Thursday 8:00 pm to Good Friday 12 noon in the Chapel.

“Can you not watch with me one hour?”  These are the words spoken by Jesus to his disciples in the Garden of Gethsemane.  We overcome the failure of the twelve by keeping an all-night watch of prayer and adoration before the Blessed Sacrament in the Chapel.  This is an intimate, highly spiritual time to spend in the presence of God.  Visit the Sign-Up Table by the Guild Room where you may indicate the time that you would like to keep watch. 

 

Good Friday at Saint Mary’s: A Day of Fasting, Prayer, and Sacrifice

Blood Drive: from 7:30AM to 1 PM.  Come and share the gift of life with others as we remember the new life that Christ has given to us through the shedding of his blood. Here in our Parish House Auditorium.  Sign-up now or walk in on Friday.

 

Friday at 12 noon:  The Prayer Watch ends with the brief Good Friday Liturgy and Communion from the Reserved Sacrament in the Chapel.

 

Friday at 4 pm:   The Way of the Cross especially for families and children

 

Friday at 6 PM:   The Good Friday Liturgy. There are powerful readings, times of silence, and the Church stripped bare by the austerity of mourning.  The Passion According to Saint John is chanted to an ancient tone; a plain, wooden cross is brought into our midst.  The organ does not sound; it, too, is silent in the face of Christ’s self-offering. 

 

The Great Vigil

Saturday evening at 7:01 PM. The Great Vigil is the hinge of the entire church year.  It begins at sunset with the Blessing of the New Fire, the Lighting of the Paschal Candle, and our procession into the darkness of the Church, still waiting for the light of the Lord’s resurrection.  The story of salvation is told through Hebrew Scripture, the font is filled, all are doused with blessed water, the lights of the church go on as Christ is proclaimed as risen, and we gather for our Paschal feast around the Lord’s table! A special treat awaits everyone at the end. Bring a bell from home to proclaim the Lord’s resurrection! All are welcome.

 

The Sunday of the Resurrection:  Holy Pascha:  Easter Day

9 AM & 11 AM:  Two identical joyous Festive Eucharists with organ, brass, and choir. 

Serving The World

GOOD FRIDAY Blood Drive: March 25, 7:30am – 1pm

On the way to work or at lunch time! Come to share the gift of life.

Here in our Parish House Auditorium. In partnership with the RED CROSS. Go to www.redcrossblood.org to make your appointment and use our sponsor code “SMary”. Or sign-up TODAY in the Auditorium. And tell your friends and neighbors!

Saint Mary’s Weekly News

March 13, 2016 – The Fifth Sunday in Lent


Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday morning, March 13.  Remember to set your clocks AHEAD one hour.

 

 

The St. Mary Schola Lenten concert: Dixit Dominus

·       Friday, March 11, 7:30, The Cathedral of Saint Luke, Portland     

·         Sunday, March 13, 4:00, The Episcopal Church of Saint Mary

This program will begin with the Gregorian chant of the Lord's Prayer in Latin (the Pater Noster), followed by a beautiful late Renaissance Pater Noster motet based on the Gregorian chant by Willaert. Following this will be a setting of the Lord's prayer in Gothic composed by Bruce Fithian. (Gothic is an ancient language that was particularly favored by J. R. R. Tolkien. If you have seen The Lord of the Rings movies, it sounds very much like Elvish). The program will feature two powerful settings of Psalm 110, known as 'Dixit Dominus.' We hope you can attend one of the concerts, as this music is rarely heard. A pre-concert talk by Bruce will precede each concert by 30 minutes. Tickets are $20 and available on-line at www.stmaryschola.org. Students are free.

 

Foyers—Thank you!!

Thank you to all who participated in the Foyers. Whether you hosted, offered to host or attended, thank you! We look forward to hearing your thoughts on how we move forward to offer these neighborhood gatherings, known as Foyers. The gatherings were full of warm fellowship and great conversation. Old friendships were renewed and new friendships were made! The article Living in Rhythm by James Koester, SSJE, provided good fodder for discussion. Father Nathan’s discussion questions were timeless and relevant to our busy lives. How do you remember the Sabbath and keep it holy? Why is rest such an important part of our lives? What do you do to keep in tune with God above you, the world around you, the people beside you and the needs within you? And what does it mean for you that God is the Chief Gardener of our souls? These questions are especially meaningful as we round the home stretch on Lent and enter Holy Week.

 

PALM SUNDAY (March 20): Begin in the Parish House Auditorium 

At both 8 AM and 10 AM, we will begin in the Auditorium with the Liturgy of the Palms. Then we will process next door to the Sanctuary for the Passion Gospel and the Eucharist. 

Christian Formation

Guiding RAY (Religious Adventures for Youth)

At 9:30 AM, Family Chapel is a brief time for families and children to be with Fr. Nathan in the Chapel. Guiding RAY classes begin immediately afterward at 9:45 AM.

The Middlers: in transition

The Middlers program is on hold until two new leaders are found. We are hoping soon to hire two young adults to lead the group every Sunday from now until June. Until then, youth are welcome to hang out in the Youth Room. But they are asked not to stay there during the Eucharist, but rather come and join their families in the liturgy. Thank you!

Young Life Club: Monday, March 14 at 7:31 PM

All area high schoolers are invited to crash the Herdrich’s home at 2 Town Landing Rd in Falmouth (the corner of Foreside Rd and Town Landing). Park in the corner lot across the street. It’s better if you bring a friend!
