Easter Sunday 2003

Easter Sunday 2003 dawned cool and cloudy but dry, as some 17 Summerlea and St. Andrew's folks headed to the lakeshore for a "sunrise" service (in fact the sun had risen some time before the 7:30 AM gathering at the church).

After the sunrise service the participants returned to the church to replace the adornments that were removed from the chancel after the Seder supper Maundy Thursday, then to enjoy a breakfast of juice, hot cross buns and coffee.

The Easter Sunday service at 10 AM saw a full house as the junior and senior choirs offered rousing Easter music and Rev. Howard provided stories to bring home the meaning of Easter for young and old alike.

Following are a few photos of the participants. There are a number of large photos, so they may take some time to download.

During the proceedings flocks of geese flew over. Darryl said he had arranged the flypasts because the goose is the Celtic symbol of the Holy Spirit.

The chancel unadorned (the adornments were removed Maundy Thursday after the Seder).

On return from the lakeshore the group replaced the chancel adornments.
(Still not quite to the level of the Italian Renaissance churches.)

Time to enjoy a well-earned breakfast.

A Video Clip Test
Clicking on the link below will download a 13 second video clip of the junior choir in action. It is a 4 MB file that takes minutes to download on high speed service.
If you do not have high speed Internet service it will take forever - not recommended.
The file type is .AVI. If you do download it, it should play automatically using your a/v software. If it does not play, forget it - the quality is poor and not worth a hassle.
