Therefore, if anyone has ever contemplated joining, now is the time, since the continuation of the Choir is hanging in the balance.   If the Choir continues, there will still be one anthem sung per month at St. Peter.  Rehearsal times can be flexible, such as a shorter practice more often, or a 15 minute practice less often etc.  Marianne is willing to work with everyone's schedules. If anyone has any questions, feel free to call her at 583-7926.

    P. The Lord be with you.

    C. AND ALSO WITH YOU.

   P.  Let us pray.  Mercifully assist us, O Lord God of our

         salvation, that we may enter with joy upon the

         contemplation of those mighty acts whereby you

         have given us life everlasting through your Son,

         Jesus Christ our Lord.

    C.  AMEN.

 Gospel Reading                                                 Mark 11:1-11

     P.  The Lord be with you.

     C.  AND ALSO WITH YOU.

     P.  Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

     C.  IT IS RIGHT TO GIVE HIM THANKS AND PRAISE.

    P.  We praise and thank you, O God, for the great acts of

           love by which you have redeemed us through your

           Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.  On this day he entered

           the holy city of Jerusalem in triumph, and was

           acclaimed Son of David and King of kings by those

           who scattered their garments and branches of palm

           in his path.  We ask that you bless these branches

           and those who bear them, and grant that we may    

           ever hail Jesus as our Lord and follow him with

           perfect confidence; through the same Jesus Christ

           our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy 

           Spirit, one  God, now and forever.

     C.  AMEN.

     P.  Let us go forth in peace.

     C.  IN THE NAME OF THE LORD.
