Holy Week Schedule
Holy Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
At noon we join in the chapel for word, prayer, song and Holy Communion. A quiet, brief time of worship.
The Three Days
(Thursday, Friday and Saturday services are at 7:30 in the evening)
Since Maundy means command, this night comes bearing 2 commands. Our Lord washes feet and speaks of our doing the same. Then he commands us to “Love one another as I have loved you.” Ponder the words of Psalm 22 as we watch the sanctuary being stripped of all dressing—a foreshadow of our Lord’s experience the next day.
At midday we will sing, pray and hear of our Lord’s crucifixion according to John. In the evening experience the traditional Tenebrae service, as we listen to John’s account, while candles are extinguished one by one until darkness.
The Great Vigil of Easter (Saturday)
An evening to witness the overall scope of God’s salvation story for us. Processing with candles into a dark sanctuary, we recall the light for all the world. We baptize, listen to God’s written word, and celebrate the first strains of Easter alleluias.
The Resurrection of our Lord (Sunday)
The “Queen of feasts” of the Christian Year, the Resurrection of our Lord, Easter Sunday invites us to lift our voices in praise. Come make music with our choirs, brass, strings and bells. Death no longer has power over us. Christ is risen! Tell all the world. Easter morning services are the normal times of 8:45 and 11:00 am.
We welcome you to join us as we explore together how the Lord would have us be his church in this place today and in the days to come.
