Palm Sunday 2013 at St. Edward the Confessor, Clifton Park

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We had a spectacular Palm Sunday at St. Edward the Confessor. It was so crowded at the 11am mass, all I could think of was the people lining the way as Jesus made his entry into Jerusalem. We were full and many people were standing, all around the perimeter of the church, even in the gathering space, and in the corridor that is near the sacristy, as you head over to the Faith Formation wing.

People say that the Catholic church is dying, but you would not know that if you came to our parish!

I was also at the 4pm mass on Saturday, which was comfortably full. On Saturday we had a full choir and bell ringers; it was beautiful. We had lovely music at 11am also; we are richly blessed with remarkable music ministry in our parish.

Here is a slide show of photos from the mass; there are a lot of pictures, so it will take a few moments for them to all float by.

Hosanna!

Our annual parish Advent Reflections begin on Sunday, December 2. This marks our 6th year of doing them at St. Edward the Confessor!

If you wish to contribute to our reflections, please say so in the comments or send me an email. We welcome all contributors who might submit posts for consideration and publication. If you are interested please contact me first and we will work on the details.

Beginning on Tuesday, December 4, we will offer Taize evening prayer in Advent; all are welcome. We gather at 7pm at St. Edward the Confessor on Clifton Park Center Road, in Clifton Park, NY. If you wish to reserve one short hour a week for song, prayer and a contemplative prayer environment,  please join us. Our music ministry offers us rich gifts, we hear a reflection, as we enter the quiet waiting that Advent promises.

Thank you and blessings of Advent to you!
