Holy Week & Easter
You are Invited to worship with us and join in all of our prayers and activities as we walk Jesus' Way of Love this holy season. You and those you love are most welcome here.
Paschal Triduum (Thursday, Friday, Saturday)
The heart of Holy Week is the Triduum, the great three days of Maundy Tuesday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday which culminates with the Great Vigil of Easter. These are the three days that changed the world and are at the heart of our faith: Jesus’ suffering, crucifixion, and Resurrection; his victory over death and rising to New Life. This is the Paschal Mystery, the Christian Passover (pesach, in Hebrew), our deliverance from sin and death.
The times and details of our full Holy Week schedule can be found here.
Easter Eve, April 20
The Great Vigil of Easter, 7:30 pm
Fire, Word, Water, Table - all the symbols that tell the story of our salvation as we celebrate Christ's Resurrection. In the Memorial Garden we light the new fire of Christ’s resurrection and process into the Church with the Paschal Candle to hear by candlelight the story of our salvation, our deliverance from sin and death, renew our baptismal vows, and then celebrate the first Eucharist of Easter. Please bring a bell to ring!
Followed by the First Party of Easter in the Church Narthex.
Easter Day, April 21
8:00 & 10:00 am Festival Eucharist
Hymns, flowers, choirs, trumpet, handbells, Eucharist and Resurrection joy at both services! All children will receive a flowering plant. Easter is the most important day in our lives as Christians.

A Prayer for All Saints'
Lord Jesus, you call us to work, pray, and give for the good of the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven: assist us with the grace of your Holy Spirit to live your goodness, justice, peace, and love in our lives, in our parish, in our neighborhoods, and in God’s world, so that heaven may become more real in this life. We ask this to God’s glory, and in the strength of your holy Name. Amen.
