HOLY WEEK AT MESSIAH
Maundy Thursday April 1st at 7 pm in the sanctuary. The famed "Triduum" (3 days) of Holy Week begin with the Last Supper, where Jesus washes the feet of the disciples and gives the sacrament of Holy Communion. Unfortunately, we will be unable to re-enact the Last Supper due to COVID restrictions. The service includes Holy Communion and concludes with the stripping of the altar, which reflects the betrayal and stripping of Christ on the night of his arrest. (No reservations required.)
Good Friday Vigil -- Noon - 3 pm April 2nd
The vigil commemorates the crucifixion of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We will have music and time for silent prayer and reflection. Worshipers may come for all or for any part of the vigil.
Good Friday -- 7 pm - April 2nd
At this service we remember the crucifixion of Jesus through his Seven Last words from the Cross in a Tenebrae service (Tenebrae means shadows). This austere service has no church decorations or pariments, simply the altar and candles. (No reservations required.)
Easter Sunday -- 9 am - April 4th
The Celebration of the Resurrection includes the exchange "He is Risen!", "He is Risen Indeed". With the Good News of Easter comes Easter lilies, brass, alleluias, and the empty tomb, all focusing on the resurrected Christ's defeat of death. (Reservations required.)
