 2 April 2010

The Tre Ore Service is a devotional service of meditations and prayers on the Seven Last Words our Lord Jesus Christ spoke from the Cross during the “three hours” (tre ore) between 12:00 noon and 3:00 p.m. as He was dying for us.  During this Service we will watch and pray as Jesus bears the burden of our sin and death so that we might live in His peace now and forever.

You may remain for all seven devotions or take part in those for which you are able.  The devotions will last 20 minutes, with a 5 minute organ interlude between each for private meditation and reflection and the opportunity to come and go as you wish.  Please feel free to join us for part or all of the Service.   Christ on the crossOur choir will be singing in parts 6 and 7.

12:00 p.m. - First Word – “Father, Forgive”

12:25 – Second Word – “Today, In Paradise”

12:50 - Third Word – “Behold, Your Son . . . Your Mother”

1:15 – Fourth Word – “Why Have You Forsaken Me?”

1:40 – Fifth Word – “I Thirst”

2:05 – Sixth Word – “It Is Finished”

2:30 – Seventh Word – “Into Your Hands”

*UPDATE: Audio recordings of each of the seven messages are available here.

Picture of new church sign on Queen StreetHave you noticed it?

Historic St. Paul's Lutheran Church installed an impressive new sign last week. Included is a programmable electronic display, which will be used primarily to invite the community to church activities.

The sign was designed and built by Signs Galore Inc. of Breslau, Ontario. Many thanks to the company, and especially its founder Mr. Garry Fitz-Henry, for doing a wonderful job.

The sign will be dedicated to the Glory of God on Sunday, February 21, 2010 following the morning service.

We thank the Lord for the late Glen and Carol Biesel whose bequest made the sign possible.
