As the global Church has journeyed through this season of Lent, we find ourselves stepping into the heart of what defines the word Christian. During the final week of Lent, we embark on what the Church has called ‘Holy Week’ where we remember, mourn and celebrate the life, death and eventual resurrection of Jesus.
Maundy Thursday – April 9
Maundy Thursday traditionally commemorates the foot washing and last supper of Jesus with his disciples. It is rooted in the instruction that Jesus gave his disciples to “Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.”Maundy Thursday Guide
Good Friday – April 10
Join us on Good Friday anytime from 7:00pm to 9:00pm for a guided meditation, poetry and digital installation of the Stations of the Cross.

Holy Saturday Vigil – April 11
We like pain or drama wrapped up quickly. So we’d prefer to move right from the death of Good Friday to the life and hope of Easter Sunday. But Holy Saturday is the church’s attempt to wait – to sit and feel the loss and darkness deeply – as the disciples would have on Saturday. This night is tough. But we believe Sunday is a fuller and deeper experience if we’ll first wait and mourn well on Saturday.Holy Saturday Vigil Guide
