NOW what’s he doing?:

An occasional article to explain why we’re doing what we’re doing

Throughout Lent at all three Sunday liturgies, we will begin the service with the Penitential Order.  This slight rearrangement of the liturgy, as provided by the Book of Common Prayer, is especially intended for use during Lent.  It places the confession and absolution near the beginning of the service, thus setting a more penitential tone for the whole liturgy.

You’ll also notice that the final blessing is missing through Lent.  In its place we pray a Solemn Prayer Over the People, which is another Lenten change contributing to the change in tone in this season.

The Book of Common Prayer is full of liturgical options and rubrics that connect us to the worship of our fellow Christians over the past two millennia.  They also add variety to the Sunday celebrations which highlight the special characteristics of the various seasons of the Church year.

Music Notes

We welcome our string ensemble Hodie to the 11:15 a.m. service. The ensemble, led by our accompanist Amanda Matthews, performs once a month during the year. Hodie plays a wide range of repertoire from the late 1600s through contemporary pieces. They will join the choir during the Offertory anthem Come to Me, O Weary Traveler, a Sally Ann Morris piece last programmed at Holy Trinity in 2010. The piece, similar to our Taize offerings, includes multiple optional parts the instrumentalists can choose from during the performance.

There is still time to sign up! A Lenten Covenant Group is a small intentional community of 8-12 people who will meet weekly for approximately one hour the first full week in March through Holy Week to share spiritual reflections and to walk together on a Lenten spiritual journey. This year we’re using Barbara Brown Taylor’s book Learning to Walk in the Dark to guide our reflections. Both in-person and Zoom groups are available. Journey with us! Click here for more information and to sign up.
