Holy Week begins with a joyful celebration of Christ's triumphant entry into Jerusalem reenacted by our children. The service concludes with the reading of the Passion Narrative according to the Gospel of Mark.
After the service we will put together "Move in Kits" for homeless folks helped by Friends of Families in Transition.
The Holy Week continues with the service of Good Friday. After the Solemn Intercessions and Solemn Reproaches from the cross, the Tenebrae - a re-reading of Jesus' passion will end the service. Join us for a quiet reflective service of readings, music and meditation.
Childcare will be provided.
The church continues her vigil while Christ lays in the tomb. Join us for a short but moving service of the Easter Vigil when we will renew our baptismal vows. Casey-lee Bastien will help us with the coming up with light. As the light of Christ pierces the night Russ Goliger will help us chant the "Exculset." We will hear the Resurrection account from the Gospel of Matthew chanted in Greek, Latin and Hebrew by Peter T Arvantely.
A profound and moving experience.
Alleluia! Jesus is Risen!
