We hope everyone will honor Holy Week, even as we continue to stay home for the health and safety of all. The services below are powerful ways for us to participate in the mystery of the Christian faith.
Our Holy Week services will be livestreamed on our Facebook page at the times below, with the exception noted.
Maundy Thursday: April 9 at 6 pm
The term “Maundy” comes from the Latin mandatum novum, meaning “new commandment.” We remember Jesus telling his disciples, “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another” (John 13:34). We see what this kind of love looks like as Jesus takes the role of a servant and washes his disciples’ feet. Maundy Thursday also commemorates our Lord’s institution of the sacrament of Holy Eucharist at the last supper with his disciples on the night before he died for us. The service moves to the stripping of the altar as we remember how, on the night he was betrayed, our Lord was stripped of his power and glory. It ends in silence.
Good Friday: April 10 at 12:15 pm
Good Friday commemorates our Lord’s suffering and death on the cross. The service includes the reading of the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ according to St. John, solemn prayers for the Church and the world, the veneration of the cross, and Holy Communion from the Reserved Sacrament.
