The Three Days Worship Schedule

Maundy Thursday, April 2, Holy Eucharist, 7 pm.

On Ash Wednesday we came to the Baptismal bowl to receive our ashes after a lengthy confessions of sins. On this night, we come again to the Baptismal bowl and receive individual forgiveness. We are ready to enter more deeply into the Three Days Liturgy. We strip the altar after Eucharist, remembering Jesus’ humiliation by his guards.

Good Friday, April 3, Passion Narrative of St. John, 7 pm.

This is a very subdued service as we hear the testimony of those who witnessed Jesus’ death and burial. We hear lessons from the Biblical sources that led the disciples as they grew in understanding of Jesus’ death: Isaiah 53 and Psalm 22.

Vigil of Easter, April 4, Holy Baptism, 7 pm.

The Old Testament Salvation Stories remind us of God’s mighty acts of creation and deliverance of God’s people. We savor these stories and tell them with creative flair and fun. We will affirm our own baptisms and rejoice in receiving a blessed child of God through Holy Baptism this year. Buried with Christ in his death, we are raised with him in his resurrection. And we celebrate with Alleluias of praise.


Easter Sunday, April 5, Holy Eucharist, 9:30 am.

Our Brunch Sunday in April is Easter Sunday, after worship. We invite everyone to bring a potluck brunch dish to share so that we have enough for all, including our visitors.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon:
where there is doubt, faith ;
where there is despair, hope
where there is darkness, light
where there is sadness, joy
O divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

Amen.
