Christ the King (or “Reign of Christ” Sunday, Proper 29) is the last Sunday of the liturgical year, marking an eschatological bridge to Advent.
Preludes and postludes continue as usual.
Canticle 2 (Rite One) or 13 (Benedictus es, Domine) from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer is used in place of the Gloria. A setting such as S-236 from the Hymnal 1982 may be used.
Vestments are white (not Coronation set) as in Eastertide.Last updated: June 22, 2013 at 10:33 am
