Maundy Thursday
Christ Church and St. Luke's
Christ Church will hold its Maundy Thursday service, April 1 at 12:00 noon in the church courtyard. Christ Church parishioners are also invited to participate in the Maundy Thursday service at St. Luke's, North Park Thursday evening. This will be a dinner service at tables in pandemic-spaced outdoor dining. The service will include Maundy Thursday scripture readings and a sermon or reflection. Space is limited and reservations are required. Please contact Sandy in the parish office by Tuesday evening, March 30 if you wish to attend.
Good Friday
April 2 @ 12:00 noon
Good Friday is the day that Christians commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It occurs on the Friday before Easter and is often observed as a day of sorrow, penance, meditation, and fasting. Christ Church will worship on Good Friday, April 2 at 12:00 noon, in the Christ Church courtyard.

The Good Friday offering will provide support for the ministries of the four dioceses of the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East. Hear Bishop Curry's message.
Good Friday Pilgrimage Hike
An Invitation to Walk with Jesus
This Good Friday, April 2, you are invited to meet your Christ Church family at the parking lot of the Tijuana Estuary in Imperial Beach at 3:00 p.m. Together we will walk and pray the stations of the cross. This 4.5 mile hike takes us by the Navy base and down to the water. Sneakers, water bottles and waivers required. Please contact Charlette to register. You'll need to sign a waiver at the event site to participate.
Holy Stories and Easter Egg Dyeing
Saturday, April 3 @ 6:30 p.m.
Families are invited to the Christ Church courtyard on Holy Saturday at 6:30 p.m. Wear your coziest sweatshirt and bring your beach chairs. Together we will dye eggs with shaving cream, watch the Easter Vigil video produced by our diocesan youth, and assist with the final preparations for Easter Sunday. This special evening is the perfect way to prepare your heart for the resurrection on Sunday.
Easter Sunday
Sunday, April 4 - 6:00 and 10:00 a.m.
Come celebrate the resurrection with your Christ Church family at two Easter Sunday services in the church courtyard - the 6:00 a.m. Great Vigil and the 10:00 a.m. Easter service.

Children's Chapel will take place at 10:00 a.m. around the flagpole. Children who are age 4-11 are invited to join Charlette Preslar in the outdoor classroom; they will join their parents for communion.

Although we will need to wait another year for our lovely Easter breakfast and fun-filled Easter Egg hunt, we will have the Flowering of the Cross this year. Bring your fresh-cut blooms to adorn the cross that will reside in the Memorial Garden that afternoon.

Easter Offerings - 2021
St. Luke's, North Park
Honoring children is part of who we are as Christ Church. This Easter, Mtr. Regan invites you to honor our Diocesan children by making a gift to pass on to our siblings in Christ at St. Luke’s North Park. It is my great hope that our funding will help St. Luke’s continue to respond quickly to emerging needs. May this season of Action in Easter be all about “the love of Jesus in a whole new way!”
