Preparing for Holy Week
Can you believe that we are nearing the end of Lent and Holy Week is fast approaching us? This Sunday Christians around the world join together to observe one of our most important weeks, Holy Week. It begins with the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem and the people waving palm branches as they cry out “Hosanna!” which means “Save us!” The week continues with the observance of the Last Supper on Thursday night where we reflect on John 13 and Jesus’ love to the very end. On Friday, we observe the crucifixion of Jesus and we will hear the Seven Last Words of Jesus read in worship. The dynamic week concludes with Easter Sunday as we celebrate Resurrection hope!
There are many ways to observe Holy Week and you are invited to attend the prayerful services of reflection next week.
Sunday, March 29 at 11 AM – Palm Sunday
Wednesday, April 1 at 7 PM – Taizé prayer and singing
Thursday, April 2 at 7 PM – Holy Thursday
Friday, April 3 at Noon – Good Friday Reflections
Sunday, April 5 at 11 AM – Easter Sunday Celebration
However you choose to observe Holy Week we pray it is a time that you experience the presence of God in the love of Christ.
