Worship Resources: Lent & Holy Week

Our chapel staff—Dean of the Chapel Dr. Paul Grime, Kantor Kevin Hildebrand, and Associate Kantor Matthew Machemer—recently put together another set of resources for worship planners, this time for Lent. Lent begins in two weeks on Ash Wednesday, February 26.

Go to www.ctsfw.edu/worship to access and print these Lenten resources. Under “VERSE SETTINGS” you’ll find the verses for Lent 1-5 (Series A). Though the “Alleluias” are put away for the season, this series for a soloist or unison choir give you options for singing the proper verse for the day.

You can also find special settings for two Lent hymns (LSB 425 “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross” and LSB 440 “Jesus, I Will Ponder Now”) under the “HYMN SETTINGS” button. There is also a Lent Gradual written for hand bells and voice available by clicking “GRADUALS.”

Finally (though not new), there is a section specifically set aside for Holy Week, featuring video, audio, and pdf for Easter Vigil, and scripts and suggested hymn stanzas for the St. Luke and St. Mark Passions.

As always, you have permission to use, reprint, and distribute these materials as you need. We hope that they will be of service to your congregation this coming Lent.
