Holy Week Schedule     

Maundy Thursday Maundy Thursday marks the beginning of the Triduum—the three days that lead us from the upper room to the empty tomb. This solemn Divine Service begins with corporate confession and absolution, includes Holy Scripture readings and a sermon on God’s new covenant, focuses on the Holy Supper our Lord Jesus gives His people, and concludes with Psalm 22 and the stripping of the altar in preparation for Good Friday. Service Begins at 6:30 pm. Good Friday On Good Friday we ponder anew God’s great love for us in Jesus Christ—the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. This Tenebrae Service (service of darkness) features Isaiah’s prophecy of Christ’s sacrifice and a choral version of the Passion according to Saint John. It concludes in almost total darkness as we ponder the wages of our sin and what it cost Christ to redeem us. Service Begins at 6:30 pm. Easter Vigil On Holy Saturday, we celebrate our baptism into Christ’s death and resurrection. This candlelight service begins in almost total darkness with the lighting of the paschal candle, features Old Testament readings that foreshadow and explain our baptismal life in Christ, and ends with the first proclamation of Easter. Come and join in one of the church year’s most beautiful services. Service Begins at 6:30 pm. Easter Sunday Easter is our annual celebration of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. The festive Divine Service focuses on Saint Luke’s account of the resurrection and includes the Supper of our Lord’s resurrected body and blood. This service also features special choral and instrumental music. Come and celebrate our Lord’s resurrection with your brothers and sisters in Christ! Service Begins at 9:00 am.
