The Three Days of Christ’s death and resurrection

 

Thursday, April 17 –  Maundy Thursday

12 p.m. & 7 p.m. Holy Eucharist in the Nave

1 p.m. A light lunch follows the Noon liturgy

At the heart of the Maundy Thursday liturgy is Jesus’ commandment to love one another. As Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, we are called to follow his example as we humbly care for one another, especially the poor and the unloved. At the Lord’s table we remember Jesus’ sacrifice of his life, even as we are called to offer ourselves in love for the life of the world. You may wish to wear easily removable footwear in order to participate in the ritual footwashing at 7 p.m.

 

Friday, April 18 – Good Friday

12 p.m. & 7 p.m. Adoration of the Crucified in the Nave

At the heart of the Good Friday liturgy is the passion according to John, which proclaims Jesus as a triumphant king who reigns from the cross. In the ancient bidding prayer we offer petitions for all the world for whom Christ died. This day’s liturgy culminates in the Easter Vigil tomorrow evening.

Saturday, April 19 – The Resurrection of Our Lord– Easter Vigil

7 p.m. The Great Vigil of Easter beginning outside on the Trinity Green

This night is the heart of our celebration of the Three Days and the pinnacle of the church’s year. We gather around a pillar of fire, hear ancient stories of our faith, welcome new sisters and brothers at the font, and share the food and drink of the promised land.

This Sunday

April 20, 2014
The Resurrection of Our Lord – Easter Day
Note: only one liturgy at 10 a.m. this day!

What does it mean to be Christian? Christians are those who believe that Jesus Christ is risen from the dead and that he continues to enliven his people with his Spirit. On every Sunday we remember Christ's resurrection, but once a year we have a blowout celebration of this central mystery of the faith. Come to celebrate with us.
