Holy Week at St. Stephen’s

Entering into the Mystery of Christ’s passion, death and resurrection through worship

The wonder of Holy Week is that we walk through the last week of Jesus’ life at the same pace that he walked through it.

April 14 – Palm Sunday, 8am and 10am                                                                 We raise our palms high shouting “Hosanna!  Blessed is the One who comes in the name of the Lord!”  as Jesus enters into Jerusalem.                                                                                                                           9:50 am Sunday – we will gather in North Hall to begin our procession.

April 18 – Maundy Thursday, 7:30 pm                                                                We go to the Last Supper where Jesus washes his disciples’ feet and shares the holy meal with them.   It is at the end of that meal that Judas starts the process of Jesus’ betrayal.

9pm Thursday-7am Friday in the sanctuary                                                            We go to the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus prays all night. We manage to “stay awake for one hour.”

April 19 – Good Friday – 7:30 pm service in the Sanctuary                            We go to the trial and witness the crucifixion. There will be no Eucharist at this service.

April 20 – Holy Saturday and the Easter Vigil, 7:30pm                                       We recognize the quietness of this day.  At sundown, we begin the first service of Easter. The light of Christ pierces the darkness of the tomb, people are baptized into faith. A reception with a chocolate fountain follows this first service of Easter.

April 21 – Easter Sunday Morning Prayer, 6:30 am (outside)                       Festival Eucharist at 9 am and 11 am NOTE TIME CHANGE

We go to the empty tomb.  He is RISEN!  This is good news to proclaim!!
