Holy Week and Easter
What is the Meaning of Holy Week?
Maundy Thursday – April 13 - Light Dinner/Communion, 6:30pm. A solemn sharing of worship over a ‘passover’ meal in our Parish Hall.
Good Friday – April 14 – Stations of the Cross, 12:10. We walk our beautiful stained glass panels, hand-made by members of our congregation from broken glass, retrieved after the Northridge earthquake.
NEW this year – Service of Light and Darkness, 7pm
On Ash Wednesday we received ashes as we began our Lenten journey as a symbol of “repentance”. New this Good Friday, in the midst of a service that will include scripture readings, candles and music, we will offer an anointing with holy oil as a symbol of our baptismal covenant, followers of Jesus, hearing the words,
“Remember you are buried with Christ to rise with Christ.”
The Great Vigil of Easter – April 15, 7pm. The new fire of Easter is started, outside on our patio, from which the great Easter candle is lit. The dark sanctuary gives way to the lighting of candles, and ringing of bells, with Holy Eucharist, as the service celebrates the first Easters of the early Christians, when new Christians were baptized into the faith.
Easter Day – April 16
Rite I Holy Communion, 8am;
Holy Communion with Full Choir and Orchestra, 10am.
