From the Cross to New Life
Holy Week is the time when we remember very specific events in Jesus’ life and ministry.
A fancy name for this week is called the Triduum (trih-dyu-um).
On Palm Sunday, (April 14, 7:45am, 10:15am, 10:21am & 6pm), we commemorate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem and his crucifixion during each Sunday service.
On Maundy Thursday, (April 18, 7pm), we recall Jesus’ greatest commandment to us: to love others as God loves us. We remember the Last Supper and we strip the altar in preparation for the bleakness of…
Good Friday (April 19, 12pm- Stations of the Cross, choral meditation to immediately follow 1pm & 7pm), when we observe the Passion of Jesus Christ: the story of his arrest, torture, and crucifixion. It is a somber, dark, day, but is integral to our Christian story, because it leads to…
The Great Vigil of Easter (April 20, 7pm). This unique service takes us literally out of the darkness of the tomb into the new light of Christ. We light the new fire to illustrate how Jesus’ light can never be extinguished fully. We carry the new light into the darkened church where we recall the many ways over time that God has saved us. Then we celebrate the bursting forth from the darkness in the Easter moment. Our youth and children tell stories of God’s salvation through drama and the arts, and our choir provides amazing music. This is the original Easter celebration. One not to be missed!
