HOLY WEEK AND EASTER  . Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday with the Procession of The Palms, The Reading of the Matthew Passion and Holy Communion. This day commemorates the day Jesus entered Jerusalem for the last time to the acclamation of the crowds. From Monday to Wednesday we hear of the events of that last week leading up to Jesus betrayal by Judas and his arrest and trials. On  Maundy Thursday we commemorate the Last Supper when Jesus washed the disciples feet and told them of his impending death. Then we enter into the experience of the Garden of Gethsemane with Jesus and the Disciples where he is arrested. The service is in 3 parts – the Passover Meal, The Holy Communion and The Stripping of the Altars. On Good Friday  we journey with Jesus through his arrest, trials, crucifixion and burial. The service consists of the Reading of the John Passion, The Veneration of the Cross and Holy Communion. On Saturday Evening  we observe the Easter Vigil and the first Eucharist of Easter. On Easter Sunday  we Light the Paschal Candle and join in joyous praise of our Risen Lord at the Easter Eucharist. Please join us for any, or all if you can, of these observances.
