Holy Week Worship Services Information

Holy Week Worship Services Information here

From Pastor AmyYou are invited to make a home altar to have near you as you participate in online worship.  Suggestions for the home altar include a candle, a bowl of water, a cross, pictures of people who help remind you of God’s presence with you.

Palm Sunday (April 5) – We will use the palms of our hands to welcome and anoint Jesus as we enter Holy Week. Families are encouraged to make palm branches by tracing hands, cutting them out, coloring them green and pasting them onto sticks. You may also want to display these palm branches in your windows. In preparing for worship at 9:30 am, you are also encouraged to have hand lotion with you.

Maundy Thursday (April 9)– You are invited to share in on online dinner worship at 5:30 pm around your kitchen table. We will remember our Lord’s last supper as we share in suppers at our home.  As we share in a meal together, you’re invited to have bread and wine or grape juice available. Our Presiding Bishop is calling us to fast from Holy Communion in this time of virtual worship. On Maundy Thursday we will share a virtual meal, including bread and wine/grape juice, and remember Christ’s presence is always with us.

Good Friday (April 10) – In preparation for Good Friday, gather the crosses in your home near you. We will receive the sign of the cross on our bodies as we move through worship at 7:00 pm. 

If you are interested in doing a reading for worship using Zoom or video (as you saw last week) please email Pr. Amy.
