The Ramsay Report


March 27, 2017

Sunday was overcast and damp. There were 9 people at the 8:00 AM service and 62 in attendance at the 10:00 AM service. It was the Fourth Sunday In Lent or Gaudete or Rose Sunday. The Processional Hymn was, “The Glory Of These Forty Days” and the Sequence Hymn was, “I Want To Walk As A Child Of God.” The Gospel Reading was from John 9:1-41 (see attached). We learn from this passage the healing of the blind man by Jesus and restoring his sight and how the Pharisees deny the miracle. The message learned is that we need the spiritual sight and sound in recognizing Jesus teachings and the miracles he performed. The Offertory Anthem was, “Father, In Thy Mysterious Presence Kneeling.” The Communion Hymns were, “Deck Thyself, My Soul, With Gladness” and “Thine Arm, O Lord, In Days Of Old.”  The Recessional Hymn was, “O For A Thousand Tongues To See.” 

 

The altar flowers were given by Francesca Bergenn to the glory of God and in celebration of Edward T. Bergenn’s 45th birthday. The sanctuary lamp was given by Paul and Susan Parfrey to the glory of God and in loving memory of John Kenah. The vigil lamp was given by Tom and Jeanine Carroll to the glory of God and in thanksgiving for Lisa Selvaggio’s continued healing. The bread and wine of the Eucharist was given by Tom and Jeanine Carroll to the glory of God and in celebration of Stella Elder’s birthday and Stella and Drew’s wedding anniversary.

 

The Coffee Hour, as always, was filled with chatter and laughter, as our parishioners caught up with each other. The Coffee Hour was hosted by “Amana.” There were cakes for all to enjoy with their coffee and tea. 

 

Meanwhile the Altar Guild met in the Church to prepare for Holy Week and Easter and our Church School children and staff met with Arkady Leytush to begin rehearsing for Easter.

 

Have a great week and hope to see you all next Sunday!
