A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew Glory to Christ our Saviour.

And when they drew near to Jerusalem and came to Beth'phage, to the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find an ass tied, and a colt with her; untie them and bring them to me. If any one says anything to you, you shall say, `The Lord has need of them,' and he will send them immediately." This took place to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet, saying, 
 "Tell the daughter of Zion, Behold, your king is coming to you,
 humble, and mounted on an ass, and on a colt, the foal of an ass." The disciples went and did as Jesus had directed them; they brought the ass and the colt, and put their garments on them, and he sat thereon. Most of the crowd spread their garments on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. And the crowds that went before him and that followed him shouted, "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!" And when he entered Jerusalem, all the city was stirred, saying, "Who is this?" And the crowds said, "This is the prophet Jesus from Nazareth of Galilee." This is the Gospel of Christ Praise to Christ our Lord.

THE COLLECT Almighty and everliving God, in your tender love for the human race you sent your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ to take upon Him our nature, and to suffer death upon the cross, giving us the example of His great humility: Mercifully grant that we may walk in the way of His suffering, and also share in His resurrection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


A Reading from the Word of God written in the Second Book of Isaiah Chapter 45 beginning at the 21st verse

!Thus says the Lord, “Declare and present your case; let them

take counsel together! Who told this long ago? Who declared it of old? Was it not I, the LORD? And there is no other god besides me, a righteous God and a Saviour; there is none besides me. "Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other. By myself I have sworn, from my mouth has gone forth in righteousness a word that shall not return: `To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.'"Only in the LORD, it shall be said of me, are righteousness and strength; to him shall come and be ashamed, all who were incensed against him. In the LORD all the offspring of Israel
 shall triumph and glory."


Reader: ALL:

Here ends the Reading. Thanks be to God.

!PSALM 22: 1-11 Deus, Deus meus. 1.My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?* and are so far from my cry and from


the words of my distress? 2.O my God, I cry in the daytime, but you do not answer;* by night as well, but I find no rest. 3.Yet you are the Holy One, * enthroned upon the praises of Israel. 4.Our forefathers put their trust in you; * they trusted, and you delivered them. 5.They cried out to you and were delivered;* they trusted in you and were not put to shame. 6.But as for me, I am a worm and no man, * scorned by all and despised by the people. 7.All who see me laugh me to scorn; * they curl their lips and wag their heads, saying, 8."He trusted in the Lord; let him deliver him; * let him rescue him, if he delights in him." 9.Yet you are he who took me out of the womb, * and kept me safe upon my mother's breast. 10.I have been entrusted to you ever since I was born;* you were my God when I was still in my mother’s womb. 11.Be not far from me, for trouble is near,* and there is none to help. Glory to the Father, and to the Son;*and to the Holy Spirit; As it was in the beginning is now:*and shall be forever. Amen.



!THE EPISTLE !A Reading from the Word of God written in the Letter to the Philippians Chapter 2 beginning at the 5th verse. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 
 And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

THE HOLY GOSPEL: Matthew 26: 36-27:56 dramatized from the booklet provided

From the Rector’s Notebook Greetings


Today is Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week. On this day we call to mind Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem.



Liturgically we join in procession and receive our palm cross which for us is a sign of victory as we sing 'Hosanna to the Son of David'.


Holy Week is tremendously significant in may ways, primarily it is that time when we contemplate the final words and actions of our Saviour Jesus Christ, as he ends his historical journey here on earth.


The final days of Holy Week will demand our attention and a change to our normal personal schedules as we participate in the liturgies of the Paschal Triduum which begins on the evening of Maundy Thursday.


Professor Patrick Regan of San Anselmo University, Rome tells us that in the Paschal Triduum we observe one event, the path and passage of our Lord from this world to the Father. He considers that the Passion of Christ not only signifies crucifixion; but rather the glorification of the Son.


This glorification is observed conveniently over a period of three days. Good Friday is therefore part of the observance when the bridegroom is taken away; but he has not gone for ever, for in the midst of laying down his life, he remains with us and returns powerfully at the celebration of the PaschEaster


The Holy Saturday night vigil is is an impressive liturgy in which we renew our baptismal vows. The holy church awaits the return of the Bridgroom, the Triduum ends with the Mass of Vigil.


In our baptism we are given new life since we share in the passage of our Lord from death to life eternal.



We follow the thinking of Professor Kevin Irwin whose view it is that when we hear “vigil” the clear message is to come to mass the following day. Easter Day then is one of obligation in which me make our communion with our risen Lord.


In all of our life therefore we experience the dying and rising until that time when death shall be swallowed up in victory as the blessed apostle Paul tells us.


Let us make the effort to participate in these wonderful events in which Jesus brought salvation to the world and encourages us to face the daily challenge with vigour and hope.


We have the chance to be good evangelists and invite our friends and relatives to share with us during the services of Holy Week and Easter.

! Your friend and priest, !

HEALTH CORNER EAT YOUR VEGGIES Vegetables are good sources of vitamins, minerals and fiber. Each person should aim to eat two or more servings of vegetables daily. How much is that? A serving is 4 ounces or half cup of vegetables. Did you know? ✓ 1 serving of the following vegetables can provide all or nearly all of the Vitamin A needed daily:

!Parsley, spinach, carrots, cabbage leaves, lettuce and !


1 serving of the following vegetables can provide you with about half of the Vitamin C you need daily: String beans, christophene, okra, ripe tomatoes, lettuce and pumpkin

!Try to cook vegetables in the minimum amount of water. Too much water will result in greater losses of nutrients and flavor. The water used to cook vegetables could be used in stews and soups. This water contains water soluble nutrients.

To reduce nutrient losses and cooking time, add vegetables to boiling water. This also aids in preserving flavor.

Many nutrients are concentrated just beneath the skin, therefore where possible cook vegetables in their skins. If you don’t eat the skins, you can peel them after cooking by pulling the thin layer off; you would have still preserved the nutrients during the cooking process.

!Nutrient loss occurs when vegetables are exposed to light and air; therefore, don’t wash, chop, or slice vegetables until you are ready to use them.
