March 6, 2018 Holy Week and Easter at Christ Church
Holy Week offers each of us the opportunity to observe the last days of Jesus' life. The liturgies in the Book of Common Prayer invite us to participate with body, mind and spirit as we recall the tender moments of Jesus' Last Supper, the anguish in the Garden of Gethsemane and that dark Friday afternoon we call Good. I invite you to participate in these observances knowing that by doing so your Easter Day experience will be even more glorious!
Join us Easter morning for one of three special services along with the Easter breakfast and children's activities. The schedule of the week's events appears below. We hope to share this Holy Week with you and your family.
