Let Us Worship Together
Week of April 5, 2020
Holy Week 2020
No other week in the Church year has so strong an aura of special devotion. The eight days from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday immerse us in the central mystery of God’s work of salvation through the Lord’s death and resurrection
Palm Sunday: Sunday, April 5, 9:30 AM
Traditionally, there are three Holy Week services. It starts with Palm Sunday, commemorating Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem before His betrayal. It is often marked with palm branches and shouts of praise.
Maundy Thursday: Thursday, April 9, 7:00 PM
The next service is Maundy Thursday. The term "Maundy" is based on the Latin word for "command." It comes from John 13:34, "A new command I give you..." Maundy Thursday focuses on the institution of the Lord's Supper.
Good Friday: Friday, April 10, 7:00 PM
The origins of the term "Good Friday" are debated; the weight and measure of the service are not questioned. Good Friday retraces Jesus' passion. It is the perfect preparation for Easter Sunday.
