Palm Sunday is the first day of Holy Week, a seven-day span that culminates the day before Easter Sunday. The Gospels describe Jesus' triumphant entry into Jerusalem before his crucifixion, riding on a donkey. A crowd of people greeted him with cries of Hosanna, which is an expression of prayer or joy, and threw coats and branches at his feet to honor him. The Gospel According to John specifically mentions palm branches, which were a sign of victory in pre-Christian times.
This service is the commemoration of the institution of Holy Communion by Jesus as we reflect on his commandment to love one another as He loved us. We recount Jesus’ last supper with the disciples, being betrayed and waiting in the Garden of Gethsemane.
It is a somber service where the altar is stripped and clergy wear black vestments. We'll have readings, music, foot-washing, and celebrate the Eucharist.
- Please plan to have a basin and water to participate in the foot-washing from your home.
On Good Friday we remember Christ's crucifixion. It is a somber service and the clergy wear black vestments. We will wait and watch with Jesus. We will meditate on the death of Jesus.
