The Three Days March 28-30

The congregation is preparing for The Three Days of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Day. They stand at the center of our church year, beginning on sundown Thursday and concluding at sundown on Sunday. Maundy Thursday includes Individual Absolution, Holy Communion and the Stripping of the Altar. On Good Friday the congregation assembles around the Word and for the Adoration of the Cross. After sundown on Friday Canonical Hours will be held every three hours to mark Holy Saturday. After sundown on Saturday the Easter Day begins and the congregation gathers at 9:00 p.m. in the courtyard for the Vigil of Easter with the new fire and candle, the readings of redemption, the return of the “Alleluia” of Easter, and the celebration of the mystery of Christ’s death and resurrection in baptismal water and eucharistic bread and wine. On Easter Sunday we gather for worship at 8:30 a.m. and 10:50 a.m.
