For Christians, the pinnacle of the church year happens during the eight days from Palm/Passion Sunday through the First Sunday of Easter as we recall the death and resurrection of Jesus. The worship experience during these days will be offered online. Though we are not able to gather in-person, we encourage you
to bring friends and family…inviting them to walk these days with Christ and with us as we journey
from the saving mystery of Christ’s death to the hope and power of new life in Him.
The Paschal Triduum is the Three Great Days of the Christian faith. The three evening services on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday are in fact one liturgy that encompasses the entire saving mystery
of the death and resurrection of Christ.
These are indeed holy days! Plan to join us each weekday morning during Holy Week for Morning Prayer at 8 a.m. on our website,
March 28, 9:30 a.m.
We will bless the palms and hear the Gospel account of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem.
The readings for the day center around Mark’s account of Jesus' suffering and death. Holy Communion is celebrated.
April 1, 7 p.m.
Holy Communion will be celebrated. The service will also include a hand-washing, recalling Jesus’ act of self-giving service before his disciples. And the chancel will be stripped of its decoration even as Jesus was humiliated by his captors.
April 2, 7 p.m.
This is the middle of the three Great Days. Our three-day Triduum liturgy continues with a reading of the Passion story, Solemn Prayers, and the Adoration of the Cross.
April 3, 8 p.m.
We gather online as the sun is setting. The Paschal Candle, extinguished after Thursday’s service, is lit and the good news of Easter (the Light of Christ!) is proclaimed. We hear stories of God's salvation from the Old Testament. We remember our Baptism. Finally, the Easter Gospel is read and the first Eucharist of Easter is celebrated.
April 4, 9:30 a.m.
He is Risen ...
He is Risen, indeed!
We gather to joyfully celebrate the
risen Lord with Good News from the scriptures, Holy Communion, prayers and praise, and special music.
LISTEN TO THE STORY OF JESUS DURING HOLY WEEK
Like Jesus, we began our journey back on Ash Wednesday that has led us to Holy Week. Beginning Palm Sunday and throughout the week,
Miss Rachel will share with you stories about Jesus' life, his death
on the cross, and finally his resurrection. Alleluia!
