In Normal Years…
As we start the journey of Holy Week with Jesus and his Disciples, there is the traditional Blessing and Procession of Palms, singing “All Glory, Laud & Honour” and “Ride on, ride on in Majesty” around Mount Dinham, weather permitting. Then the long Passion Gospel this year according to Matthew is sung dramatically, with different voices as Evangelist, High Priest, Pilate, Judas, Jesus and the crowd.
