Holy Week and Easter Worship

PALM SUNDAY

April 14,   8 am & 10 am

Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem and his radical teachings set in motion the events leading to his death.  Through the Palm Sunday liturgy, we relive the last week of his life.

MAUNDY THURSDAY Supper & Liturgy

April 18,   6pm

We gather for a simple meal after which we move to the church to act out the memory of the Last Supper with Scripture, foot washing and Eucharist. The evening concludes with stripping the altar bare and keeping watch.

GOOD FRIDAY

April 19, 12 pm

The Liturgy of the Day follows an ancient pattern of silence, the Passion narrative from John’s gospel, solemn prayers, the veneration of the cross and communion (reserved from Maundy Thursday). It’s powerful.

HOLY SATURDAY

April 20, 8:30 am

Silence + waiting + mystery

This is a moment of stillness at the heart of the pascal mystery.  Death is real, but through the mercy of God, death will give way to life.  We gather for a short contemplative service on this morning, in this time of transition.

GREAT VIGIL OF EASTER    

April 21, 5:30 am

Fire + Water + Dramatic Readings +

First Eucharist of Easter

At the intersection of night and day, death and life, we await the dawn of Easter and the first proclamation that Christ is risen!  Breakfast follows at 7:30.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

EASTER DAY

April 21, 10 am

Festival Eucharist

Music + Flowers + Joy

Our long week concludes with the astounding good news of Christ’s resurrection. Alleluia!

We are sent out to serve the world with joy. But not before the Easter egg hunt!
