Holy Week begins this Sunday, March 20, with Palm (and Passion) Sunday. The liturgy of the Palms will be held in the church prior to the 9:30am service with a procession into the church to follow, weather permitting. We will also have a “blessing of the palms” as part of the 8am and 11:15am services. Also, there will be a reading of the Passion Story from Luke’s Gospel at all services.

(Cancelled due to weather. Sorry!) Thursday March24th is Maundy Thursday and we will mark the institution of the Lord’s Supper with a special combined service and potluck in the parish hall. It begins at 6pm. There will be a short ceremonial “stripping of the altar” held at 7pm in the church.

On Good Friday, we will have a 10am service which is always very solemn and powerful liturgy.

“to the glory of the resurrection”

On Easter Day, March 27th, we celebrate the Resurrection of Christ. I invite you to one of our three services, at 8am, 9:30am (traditional), or 11:15am (contemporary). The music will be jubilant. The church will be awash with flowers. The Easter message will be uplifting.

I hope you celebrate Easter with us!
