Ash Wednesday marked the beginning of our season of Lent and invited us to prepare for the celebration of Easter. The final seven days leading up to Easter Day are filled with meaningful and moving liturgies that tell the story of the last days of Jesus earthly ministry.
We will have numerous opportunities to gather to pray, worship, and reflect on the Good News of Jesus Christ and on God’s power to overcome all evil.
On Sunday April 9th, we wave our Palm Crosses as we hear of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, but also we also reflect on his Passion and death. Palm Sunday services are at 8am, 9:30am, and 11:15am.
On Wednesday April 12th, is the date of our monthly Messy Church. This is a fun and relaxed monthly gathering geared to families. This month we will be doing Easter themed crafts with a fun Easter message for everybody. Dinner is provided. The doors open at 5pm.
On Thursday April 13th, we mark Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples, at which he invited them to break bread and share wine together. At St. George’s, mark Maundy Thursday with a potluck dinner and table Eucharist 6pm in the parish hall. Everyone is welcome.
Friday April 14th is Good Friday. The Good Friday service is at 10am in the church. It is a solemn and somber service as reflect on and acknowledge the brokenness of humanity which reminds of our greatness of what God does for us in Christ.
Easter Day is the most important Christian celebration of the year.
All the weeks of preparation through the season of Lent and Holy Week are rewarded in the great victory of Easter. Death and the brokenness and evil of this world are defeated.
Come hear the joy filled message of Easter Day on Sunday April 16th at 8am, 9:30am, and 11:15am.
