A sermon entitled "Christ's: Thru and Thru" continues the Lenten sermon series at St. Luke's Episcopal Church of Sedona on Sunday at both morning Masses.
Preached by the bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Arizona and designed to aid the individual in spiritual growth during Lent, Sundays' sermon is the second in a series of six, and is based upon the epistle reading for the day, from the fourth chapter of St. Paul's first letter to the Thessalonians, and also the reading from the 15th chapter of the gospel according to St. Matthew.
Sunday's Mass hymns will include Henry Onderdonk's "How Wondrous and Great" and Frederick Faber's "There's a Wideness in God's Mercy."
Each Sunday Holy Communion, a quiet liturgy without music, takes place at 8 a.m., and is followed by Morning Prayer at 9 a.m.
Sunday's 11 am Solemn High Mass is the principal service of the day, and includes hymns, sermon, singing of the liturgy and the full ceremonial of the historic Church.
