JOIN THE JOURNEY THROUGH HOLY WEEK TO EASTER
HOLY WEEK | April 14 - April 21, 2019
During Holy Week, we walk with Jesus from triumph, to the cross, beyond the tomb, passing through to new life. 
Palm Sunday | April 14
We thank you God for the acts of love by which you have redeemed us through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. On Palm Sunday, Jesus entered the holy city of Jerusalem in triumph, and was proclaimed as King of kings by those who spread their garments and branches of palm along his way.
 
We wave branches as signs of his victory, and hail Jesus as our King, following in the way that leads to eternal life. (adapted from the BCP)
Maundy Thursday | April 18
Maundy Thursday begins in the parish hall with an agape supper.  It is a remembrance of Jesus' last supper where he took the bread, blessed it and gave it to his friends.  He humbled himself by washing their feet then invited them to pray with him in the Garden of Gethsemane as he awaited betrayal and death.  So we walk with Jesus toward his crucifixion.  Following the service, St. Mary's Chapel is open overnight for vigil.
Good Friday | April 19
We gather at the foot of the cross to pray with Jesus for ourselves, our families and friends and for God's world.
Easter Vigil | April 20
On Holy Saturday, we hear the stories of God's work in our world as we gather around the Paschal Light. We hear the stories of our ancestors as we remember who we are and celebrate Christ's bursting forth from the tomb.  Bring bells to ring as we proclaim Christ's resurrection to the world.
Easter | April 21
On Easter Sunday, our festival Easter Eucharist proclaims that Christ is rising. Our joyous worship service is proceeded by an Easter Egg hunt for our young people.  Bring bells to ring!
