Holy Week Begins


        Sunday March 29th was Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week.  We celebrated Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, and then read the Passion story, previewing the events of the week.
        On Thursday evening at 7 p.m. you are welcome to join us for the observance of the Maundy Thursday liturgy which marks the institution of the Lord's Supper.  It is the first service of what is traditionally referred to as the "Tridium" of Holy Week.
        Friday at noon we will observe Good Friday with the reading of the passion narrative in the Gospel of St. John.  That evening we will offer a Tenabrae service which is deeply moving.
        Saturday evening we mark the first Eucharist of Easter during the Easter Vigil service at 7 p.m.  There will be incense and alleluia bells!  Come and celebrate the resurrection with us.
        On Easter Sunday we will celebrate the Eucharist, this time without incense - but with lots of bells to welcome the risen Christ.
