Palm Sunday

Hosted by: St Michael's Church and Choir

On Sunday 14th April, the Palm Sunday Service will start earlier at 10.30am because of the Palm Procession and dramatic Passion Gospel to end by 12noon.  Our Celebrant is Fr Christopher Durrant.

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 Mark is sung dramatically, with different voices as Evangelist, High Priest, Pilate, Judas, Jesus and the crowd.

Hymns: 509: 86: 439. Setting: Mass in the Dorian Mode, Tallis. Motet: Ave Verum, Byrd.
