Holy Thursday, Communion, April 2nd at 7:00 pm.

Maundy Thursday is an alternate name for Holy Thursday, the first of the three days of solemn remembrance of the events leading up to and immediately following the crucifixion of Jesus.  The English word “Maundy” comes from the Latin mandatum, which means “commandment.”

Good Friday, April 3, 7:00 PMA Service of Tenebrae.

      The word "tenebrae" comes from the Latin meaning "darkness."  The Tenebrae is an ancient Christian Good Friday service that makes use of gradually diminishing light through the extinguishing of candles to symbolize the events of that week from the arrest in the garden through Jesus' burial.  This increasing darkness symbolizes the approaching darkness of Jesus' death and of hopelessness in the world without God.

       The service concludes in darkness, with, the Christ candle, carried out of the sanctuary, symbolizing the death of Jesus.  Worshipers then leave in silence to ponder the impact of Christ's death and await the coming Resurrection.

     The French Chapel will also be open on Friday, April 3 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm for personal prayer and meditation.

Easter Sunday, April 5, 10:00 AM
