Holy Week Cometh!

The most important week of the Christian year is upon us.  All are welcome here.

March 25 – April 1, 2018


Palm Sunday

Regular services at 5:30 and 8:00, procession at 10:30.

We start the morning with a festive procession, waving palms and shouting Hosanna, remembering Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem, His lampoon of the Imperial processions that Roman governors conducted. Then the laughter of the day subsides as the entirety of St. Mark’s passion is proclaimed and we begin our journey towards Good Friday.


Maundy Thursday

Agape Feast with Footwashing and Stripping of the Altar. 6:30

Maundy Thursday is our remembrance of The Last Supper. The word comes from the Latin “to mandate” or “to command” from St. John’s telling of the foot washing story. At Resurrection we gather for a simple Mediterranean meal as Jesus and His friends may have. We celebrate Holy Eucharist at a common table in remembrance of not only the Last Supper, but at Eucharistic celebrations of the early church. Then we move upstairs to the sanctuary for ritual foot washing and the stripping of that altar in preparation for the bleak austerity of Good Friday.

Bring some Mediterranean nosh (hummus, olives, feta, dolmas…)

There will be a children’s program during dinner.



After the footwashing

We will hold an all night vigil before the Altar of Repose.  A couple of us spend the whole night.  * This year we will pray the Hours at 9:00 PM, Midnight, 3:00, 6:00 and 8:00 AM, (A sleepless night makes Good Friday look and feel a lot different).


Good Friday

9:00 AM & 6:00PM (Stations)

7:00 Good Friday Liturgy

Good Friday is the day we remember the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ. At 9:00am, the hour of Christ’s death, we remember the Passion (suffering) of Christ as we meditate on the haunting Stations of the Cross hung on the sanctuary walls. At 6:00pm, we gather again, this time in the labyrinth and meditate on the Stations of the Cross in an outside setting, then at 7:00pm process inside for the Solemn Liturgy of Good Friday. Please come at 6 or 7.  Child Care will be provided!



The Great Vigil of Easter

Sundown (8:07pm)

If you come to church one time this year, come to the Vigil! Holy Saturday is the darkest day of the Christian year. It is when we remember the extinguishing of the life of Jesus Christ and His descent to the dead before His rising in glory. But mimicking nature, it is darkest before the dawn, for the great fast of Lent is broken at sundown (8:07) with the Great Vigil of Easter. The mystery of the light of Christ is rekindled in a fire outside the sanctuary, and is carried back into the church.   This year 5 of our brothers and sisters, children and grown-ups, will be Baptized!  There is no 5:30 High Mass.

Child Care will be provided!



The Sunday of the Resurrection

8:00 & 10:30 (10:30 is the big one)

The Resurrection of Our Lord and Savior is celebrated with great pomp and circumstance on Easter Morning. 8:00 is our regular Rite I Mass. It is peaceful and quietly joyful. At 10:30, all the stops come out. The music will be fantastic and hats and gloves are welcome as we join together in remembering that our Savior entered into death and rose again that we may all be saved from the oblivion of the pit.


Easter Feast

We follow Mass with a festive potluck.  Children are invited to join in an Easter Egg hunt, paying homage to the deep remembrance of fertility and new life that the Spring has always conjured in humans.

We’ll bring the hams, you bring something to share for the potluck!


For our entire Holy Week, ALL ARE WELCOME!

“And Jesus said to him, ‘Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.’.” — Matthew 8:20
