Celebrate Holy Week and Easter With Us
Easter Sunday, April 16 at 8 and 10 AM
Celebrate Easter Sunday at our 8 and 10 morning services. Following the 10 AM mass our children and children from our neighborhood will enjoy our annual Easter Egg Hunt and Party. All are welcome.
The Great Easter Vigil, Saturday, April 15 at 7:30 PM
Yes, it's a bit long but this is THE celebration of the year as we begin outside with the new fire that lights our way with the Paschal Candle into the darkened church, symbolic of the empty tomb. Gathered about this glorious light, we hear stories of God's historic love for us. We renew our baptismal vows and then celebrate the first mass of Easter with great joy. Bring your own bell to ring as we sing the great Easter hymn: This is the feast of victory!
Good Friday, April 14 at 12 Noon and 7 PM
At Noon, walk the Stations of the Cross and hear meditations by our parishioners on the Seven Last Words of Jesus from the Cross.
At 7 PM, we walk the final journey with Jesus to the cross and crucifixion as we pray for all people everywhere, venerate the wood of the Cross, and receive Holy Communion from the Pre-Sanctified Sacrament.
Maundy Thursday, April 13 at 7 PM
This celebration includes foot washing and commemoration of the institution of the Holy Eucharist.
Seder Celebration, April 12 at 7 PM
Enjoy this traditional Jewish Passover meal that commemorates Israel's Exodus from Egypt. The dinner is free but donations are always accepted; all are welcome.
Palm Sunday, April 9
Our 8 AM Palm Sunday service includes distribution of palm but dose not have the long reading of the Passion. We get an early start at 9:30 AM for the later service, which begns with the blessing of palm in the parish hall and the Palm Procession through our neighborhood, weather permitting.
