First Parish in Lexington

Palm Sunday is a Christian celebration of the triumphant return of Jesus to Jerusalem – a journey which ended with his death. What might he have been thinking as he was approaching his own death?  

This Sunday the sanctuary choir will sing Andrew Lloyd Webber’s serene and iconic “Pie Jesu,” with soprano soloists Liz Savir and Toni Tasker. They will also sing Stephen Paulus’ beautiful choral piece “The Road Home,” with guest soloist Tascha Anderson. Meg Newhouse, on flute, and Erik Svenson, on horn, will join pianist Rip Jackson in presenting Eric Ewazen’s lyrical “Pastorale” (from Ballade, Pastorale and Dance for Flute, Horn and Piano) and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ethereal “John 19:41” (from Jesus Christ Superstar). And Austin Burns will sing Samuel Barber’s poignant “Crucifixion” (from The Hermit Songs).

There will be Sunday school classes for grades Pre-K through eight. The nursery will be open for infants and toddlers.
