Holy Week 2019
If you’re looking for a deeper Easter experience, with profound liturgy and welcoming parish experience, we invite you to join us for Holy Week 2019.
Holy Week as explained by The Rev. Meghan Ryan
We can’t get to Easter without going through Holy Week. Without Christ’s Passion and Death, we can’t find the empty tomb. Except for Easter Day itself, the Church’s most ancient annual observances center around the events that took place in Jerusalem during the days that led up to Jesus’ crucifixion and death. The Church has long recognized the centrality and the essential quality of these events for those who follow the Way of Jesus. The writers of the four Gospels spend a great deal of time describing the events that unfold in the days we remember as Holy Week-so much so, that some biblical scholars refer to everything else contained in the Gospels as “prelude” to the heart of the Good News: Christ’s Passion and Death, with Easter as the sign of God’s victory over sin and death on the cross. Without these events, none of the rest of the story of Jesus makes sense.
