Plan now to join us for Holy Week & Easter Services. All are welcome.

Service at 9:00 am

The Blessing of Palms and Procession begins our service. The liturgy features the Passion of Mark followed by a reflection.

April 1, 2021 — Holy Thursday

We gather to share the Word, serve each other in the washing of feet and share in the Eucharist. Our collection will assist local food pantries. The liturgy concludes with time for silent prayer.

April 2, 2021 — Good Friday

Service at 3:00 pm

All gather in silence. The liturgy features the Passion of John followed by a reflection. With simple chant, the cross is brought into the midst of the community. Through the veneration of the cross and prayers of intercession, we respond to the Passion of Jesus.

April 3, 2021 — Easter Vigil

Service at 7:30 pm

We gather to hear the stories of salvation history. The liturgy continues with the lighting of the new fire and the Easter candle. The Exsultet is sung followed by the Liturgy of the Word, culminating in the great “Alleluia” and the Easter Gospel. The Easter water is blessed and then all join in the profession of faith, and the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

April 4, 2021 — Easter Sunday

9:00 am Eucharist

The day of resurrection continues the joy of the Vigil. We proclaim the Risen Christ in scripture, song, baptismal renewal and Eucharist.
