Palm Sunday: The Sunday of the Passion

Palm Sunday 2024.png

MARCH 23, 5:30 PM


This solemn day marks the beginning of Holy Week. We begin by joining Jesus' triumphal procession into the city of Jerusalem with joyful "Hosannas!" and end with the confusion and fear that leads to the cross.


On Palm Sunday the choir will sing "Greater Love Hath no Man" by John Ireland (1879-1962). This anthem is a staple in the choir's repertoire, but has not been heard at St. Augustine’s for some time. It was commissioned in 1912 for Charles Macpherson, the sub-organist of St. Paul’s Cathedral In London, and was intended as a meditation for Passiontide.  Regular service times on this day.

Maundy Thursday

On Maundy Thursday, we hear John’s powerful account of Jesus’ last meal with his friends. We witness the Lord and Teacher washing the feet of his disciples. We remember His “new” commandment (Maundy being the Latin word for commandment) “that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.” Janie Gould will play The Holy City as a prelude on the piano. The choir will sing "O Savior of the World" by John Goss (1800-1880). 

Good Friday

Traditionally a solemn day of fasting and penance, Good Friday commemorates the passion, or suffering and death on the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. We remember the suffering He endured for our sake. We are reminded of the depths of His love for us so that we could receive the gift of eternal life.

Great Vigil of Easter

A new fire is kindled and the Paschal candle lit. Then, on a journey from darkness to light, we hear the history of salvation from the fall in the Garden of Eden, to the new hope that comes with Jesus’ resurrection. Our Easter joy is crowned as we gather around Jesus’ table to share his life once more in the bread of life and cup of salvation.


The Great Vigil of Easter begins in darkness and ends in profound jubilation in the joy of the resurrection. During the first part of the service, psalms and canticles are alternated with readings from scripture. The anthem for the Vigil is "Come, Ye Faithful, Raise the Strain," by Eric Thiman (1900-1975).

Easter Sunday

SUNDAY, MARCH 31, 8 & 10 AM

Join us Easter Sunday as we exalt in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and the new life He brings for all of us. Our Easter joy will be reflected in our jubilant worship, music and fellowship as we celebrate together in the Risen Christ. The 10 am service will also be livestreamed.


At the Easter morning 10 am Choral Eucharist, we welcome back trumpeters Jason Albert and Tommy Purvis, and timpanist Daniel Greenwood. At the prelude we will hear trumpet voluntaries by two English composers: John Stanley and Henry Purcell. The postlude will be a concerto for two trumpets and organ by Antonio Vivaldi. The choir's Anthem is "Hark, Ten Thousand Harps and Voices" by Craig Courtney (b.1948).


All parish youth are invited meet at the flagpole after the 10 am service for the annual Easter Egg Hunt and a visit from the Easter bunny who promises to bring some special treats.
