Holy Week 2022

Holy Week – Everyone is Welcome!

April 10 – Palm/Passion Sunday | 9am & 11am. To begin Holy Week, we celebrate with palms Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, and then transition to a telling of the Passion Story of Jesus’ Journey to the Cross.

April 14 – Maundy Thursday | 6pm Soup Supper – 7pm Communion. We gather for a simple meal and story, and then communion in silence and the stripping of the altar, remembering the last supper.

April 15 – Good Friday 24 Hour Prayer Vigil | 12pm Friday- 12pm Saturday. Our community prays each of the hours of the vigil either at church (in the prayer chapel), or at home. Starting at noon on Good Friday, we take turns praying hour after hour for 24 hours, in our beautiful, still, prayer chapel, surrounded by candles. Prayer requests, Bibles, and prayers are provided. You can sign up for an hour by emailing kari_guddal@outlook.com or by signing up online at this LINK.

April 15 – Good Friday Worship | 7pm Tenebrae & Prayer Around the Cross. We pray, sing, and reflect on the last words of Jesus in the Tenebrae, and then offer our prayers and song in the darkness around the cross, lighting candles.
