annnouncements for friday, march 18, 2016


Dear Friends,

Holy Week begins this Sunday with the Liturgy of the Palms. The great “Three Days” – Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and HolySaturday / Easter – are in truth the apex and center of the Christian year. I encourage you to participate if it is at all possible for you to do so. This is not something extra that some Christians do. It is rather exactly what Christians are meant to do. These liturgies are the means that God has given to us to participate in the mysteries of our redemption. Please note the service times. I have heard it said that no one who experiences these liturgies fails to have their faith deepened, and my own experience attests to this truth.

Make time this coming Holy Week to participate in the way of our Lord’s suffering and death, that you may experience the grace of his resurrection in a more profound way.
