1. Anglican-Lutheran Service during Holy Week, Tuesday, March 26, 2013 at 7 pm at St. Paul’s. For the 4th year in a row, we are worshipping together during Holy Week. Last year we were at Hilldale, year before at St. John’s, and first year at Our Saviours. This year we will be at St. Paul’s, 808 Ridgeway St. The preacher will be the Rev. David Knudson (Lutheran Pastor). Clergy are invited to vest. The colour is red. Lay Readers are invited to robe. Clergy and Lay Readers will meet downstairs before the service. A message from St. Paul’s Acting Music Director, Bill Beckstrand: Please inform your choir members that they are invited to join with the St. Paul’s choir. The choir will rehearse at 6:15 p.m. in the chancel at St. Paul’s Anglican. The anthem, THAT PRICELESS GRACE by John Helgen (Augsburg 11-10992), is a lovely piece, and easily learned in the time we have to rehearse. Copies will be available for all who show up! If your choir uses robes, you should bring those as well. Please join us!
