Good Friday Three-Hour Service
Good Friday, April 14
It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, while the sun’s light failed; and the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Then Jesus, crying in a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.” Having said this, he breathed his last. (Luke 23:44-46)
Parishioners and people from the community are invited to join the service for an hour or all three hours. Learn more >
Stations of the Cross
Good Friday, March 14
As you enter some churches you will find Stations of the Cross — a series of pictures hung, or painted, on the church walls which depict stages of the last journey of Christ from Pilate’s house to the tomb. It is, in many places, a popular devotion during Lent or Passiontide to visit the stations to recite prayers and meditate on each stage.
This intergenerational service will walk you through the Stations of the Cross.
Holy Saturday, April 15
Join us for a performance by Director of Music Jamie Hitel of Olivier Messiaen's organ cycle Les Corps Glorieux - Seven Visions of Resurrected Life. Free admission.
The Great Vigil of Easter
Holy Saturday, April 15
The Great Vigil of Easter is one of the most ancient liturgies of the Church, dating back to the fourth century. This service leads us from death to life with Christ through fire, light, word, water, and bread and wine. A new fire is kindled, the Pascal Candle is lighted. By its light the Bible is read, prayer and praise are offered, and we celebrate the Easter sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist. Learn more >
