April 6 at 5:30 pm
On Maundy Thursday, we hear John’s powerful account of Jesus’ last meal with his friends. We witness the Lord and Teacher washing the feet of his disciples. We remember His “new” commandment (Maundy being the Latin word for commandment) “that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.”
April 7 - Good Friday Stations of the Cross, 2 pm
April 7 - Good Friday Service, 5:30 pm
Traditionally a solemn day of fasting and penance, Good Friday commemorates the passion, or suffering and death on the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. We remember the suffering He endured for our sake. We are reminded of the depths of His love for us so that we could receive the gift of eternal life.
Great Vigil of Easter
April 8 at 7:30 pm (No 5:30 pm service)
A new fire is kindled and the Paschal candle lit. Then, on a journey from darkness to light, we hear the history of salvation from the fall in the Garden of Eden, to the new hope that comes with Jesus’ resurrection. Our Easter joy is crowned as we gather around Jesus’ table to share his life once more in the bread of life and cup of salvation.

Lenten Walk in
Lent is a time for reflection, renewal and for striving towards positive change in our lives. If you have been wanting to be more active, consider joining me Thursday mornings at 9 am on the fitness trail in Riverside Park (near the Tennis Courts).

“Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. He fasted forty days and forty nights, and afterwards he was famished.”
