Holy Week




“We adore you, and we bless you, Lord Jesus Christ, here and in all the churches which are in the whole world because, by your holy cross, you have redeemed the world.” Stations of the Cross


Holy Week is fast approaching. It begins with Palm Sunday (March 24) and culminates with Holy Saturday (March 30). Palm Sunday and Easter tend to draw a crowd. They are a bit different from the other Sundays of the year, both special in their way. Palm Sunday includes a festive procession reminiscent of Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem. Easter is what every Sunday is modeled upon: a joyous celebration of the resurrection. The rest of the week is unique as well.  


Maundy Thursday brings forth so much from our scripture and our tradition.  It recollects Jesus gathering for the Last Supper, including the act of foot-washing as preparation.  Further, it concludes with the stripping of the altar, often haunting in a way, perhaps akin to what the disciples experienced as Jesus was taken away.  On Good Friday, our altar space is bare, and the liturgy is simple and profound.  


There is much more to be said about these services, although experiencing them is the best description. Each year, our members share their profound connection to these services, often expressing a desire for more attendees to partake in this shared journey. At the heart of this sentiment is a yearning to share the depth and richness of these liturgies.  I hope you will experience the culmination of Lent and a magnificent path to Easter with us!


Blessings,
