Palm Sunday, March 24
We begin with celebrating Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, but then our attention shifts to the cross and the passion of our Lord. (Worship may begin in the Faith Chapel if weather permits)
Maundy Thursday, March 28
We commemorate the Lord’s Last Supper and His gift to us in Holy Communion. Communion Services at 1:00 and 7:00 PM. The evening service will also be first Communion for those who have recently completed the Communion preparation classes.
Good Friday, March 29
We commemorate our Lord’s love for us in laying down His life for us on the cross. Worship at 1:00 and 7:00 PM. The 7:00 PM service will be a Tenebrae service, with a gradual darkening of the church as we meditate on the saving work of Christ.
Easter Vigil, March 30
Liturgically, Easter begins at sundown on Easter Eve, following the Jewish custom of beginning the new day at sundown. We begin our Easter celebration with this beautiful service of Light at 8:00 PM on Saturday. We re-affirm our new birth in Baptism, receiving the sign of the cross in water upon our foreheads, a forgiving counterpart to the ashes of repentance on Ash Wednesday. (Worship may begin in the Faith Chapel if weather permits)
Easter Sunday, March 31
The holy people of God are a joyful people because resurrection is the final word. No matter what troubles may confront us, Christ has overcome, and in Him we rejoice. There will be Communion on this Sunday at both the 8:30 and 10:15 AM services.
