Holy Week and Easter 2022

April 10

10:00 a.m. Liturgy of the Palms and the Holy Eucharist

The Sunday of the Passion: Palm Sunday

We shout “Hosannah!”, our palms are blessed, and we celebrate Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Yet triumph turns to tragedy, shouts of “Hosanna” to “Crucify him,” as the Passion Gospel of St. Luke is read at the end of the service.

5:00 p.m. The Way of the Cross

Holy Wednesday

For centuries, Christians of many denominations have conducted services (known as the Way of the Cross or the Stations of the Cross) that commemorate Jesus’ journey from being condemned to death by Pilate to his entombment. We will be using the Way of the Cross service from Celtic Daily Prayer. A quiet, meditative service.

April 14

12:00 Noon Maundy Thursday Liturgy

Maundy Thursday

The word “Maundy” comes from the Latin “mandatum” which means “command;” Christ’s Great Commandment is that we love one another as he has loved us.   At this service we reenact his demonstration of this commandment through the ritual of foot washing (optional). We will also commemorate the first Lord’s Supper. The service concludes with the solemn stripping of the altar.
