Palm Sunday service

Palm Sunday
Tomorrow we will celebrate Palm Sunday virtually on Facebook Live beginning at 10:30 am and ask you to  consider these suggestions to prepare for worship:
  • Prepare and make some unleavened bread
    (Recipe below or you may use an  ordinary piece of bread.)
  • Have your favorite choice of wine ready.
  • Bring in a green branch cutting from your bush or tree to serve as a palm. There will be a ceremonial blessing of palms before the Liturgy of the Word.
  • When the service begins and you hear the opening hymn (All Glory Laud and Honor),waive your branches and sing.
  • During the Eucharistic Prayer, hold up your bread and wine as the bread and wine from the altar is consecrated. After Fr. David partakes, he will bless you virtually and please receive the body and blood of Christ. After communion, please consume all the bread and wine that was consecrated, or pour the wine in the garden along with the bread that remains.
Unleavened bread recipe:
6 T of butter,  1 T honey,  ¼ t of salt,  1 T brown sugar,  2 C flour,  ¼ C water,  3 T milk.   Mix the wet with dry ingredients until a ball forms. Knead to proper feel. Roll to ¼" thick. Form into a  circle. Bake in a preheated oven of 275 degrees for 10-20 min.
