Updated Holy Week - Easter Schedule

April 5th - 12th

Palm Sunday (Facebook video )

Palm Sunday celebrates Jesus' entry into Jerusalem and marks the begining of "Holy Week", During this service, the congregation will process from the Garden of the Cross to the main sanctuary waving Palm fronds.  The passion story is read with various readers and the congregation taking on roles in the story. The joy of the triumphal entry is matched by the sorrow of the crucifixion story. This video with a short introduction by Fr. Paul was from 2018's Palm Sunday Celebration.

Tenebrae Wednesday

(6:15pm on Facebook Live)

The word "Tenebrae" is Latin for "Shadows." This ancient service moves us from light into shadow.  As Each Psalm is read responsively, a candle is extinguished until a single candle on the center of the Altar remains.  It is removed and a clashing sound is made in the darkness.  The service ends in silence.  

 

Maundy Thursday

(7pm on Facebook Live)

This Eucharistic Service is a remembrance of the Last Supper.  The congregation is invited to participate in an optional foot washing ceremony.  After communion, the altar is stripped and the service ends in silence.

 

Good Friday

(12pm on Facebook Live)

The passion story is read and prayers and devotions are given to commemorate the day Jesus died.  There will be communion from the reserved Sacrament.

 

 

 

Easter Sunday

(9:30am on Facebook Live)

THE LORD IS RISEN!  If Easter Vigil is Mary at the empty tomb then Easter Sunday is Mary proclaiming his ressurection to the Apostles and to the World. Special music is provided as we celebrate Christ resurrection in song, prayer and eucharist.  This service will be done in the open field by the basketball court.  Park your car, open your window and let the Easter celebration begin!
