How do we celebrate Holy Week and Easter at St. James’ Episcopal Church?
Sunday, April 2, 10:30 am – Palm Sunday: The Palm Procession and Holy Communion
We remember Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and read together the Passion Gospel.
Thursday, April 6, 6:30 pm – Maundy Thursday:
We share a meal and celebrate Eucharist with foot washing before stripping the altar to prepare for Good Friday.
Friday, April 7, 7:00 am – Good Friday Stations of the Cross:
We remember Jesus’ journey from His condemnation by Pilate to His death and burial.
Friday, April 7, 7:00 pm – Good Friday Solemn Service:
We celebrate the traditional Good Friday service, reading God’s word, sharing prayer and departing in silence. The story is left unfinished because it will not end until Easter Day.
Sunday, April 9, 10:30 am – Easter Day:
We have spent a solemn week remembering so that our joy on Easter Day abounds. We celebrate the joyous first Holy Communion of the Easter season. After the service, we have a festive Easter egg hunt for the children followed by lunch.
All are welcome to join us at the Lord’s Table!
