Holy Week and Easter is the high point of the church calendar. We bind ourself to Christ as we walk the way of sorrows into death before celebrating his victorious resurrection on Easter Sunday. This year, we are all lamenting the fact that we cannot gether together to retell the Passion and celebrate the Resurrection. Our Holy Week and Easter this year will not be all that it could be. But that is okay. Each of us can still Journey towards Easter in our own homes and we will be having services online For Palm Sunday and throughout the Holy Triduum (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Eve). 

We hope you will join us for each of the services listed below on Zoom, as well as for Morning Prayer throughout Holy Week on our Facebook page

Palm Sunday | 5pm
Palm Sunday Liturgy with Spiritual Communion at 5pm.

*As we cannot wave palm branches and process into the church, we invite you to pick some greenery from outside your house to wave in place of palms during the opening liturgy.
