HOLY WEEK & EASTER SERVICES 2014
Wednesday in Holy Week - April 16th, 7 pm
Maundy Thursday - April 17th
In a unique liturgy held in the Parish Hall, we commemorate Jesus’ teaching through example of our mandate to minister to one another and the world as servants of Christ. In the manner of the Eucharistic gatherings of the early Church, the liturgy leads into a celebration of Christian fellowship and community, with our sharing of a simple meal of soup, cheese, fruit and bread, made from the contributions of all. As the evening moves ever closer to Good Friday, our time together concludes with a solemn procession to the church for prayers offered before the cross. Individuals are invited to remain for silent prayer and meditation until 10:00pm.
* To assist our preparations, we ask that you indicate your attendance at the Agapé Meal. 215.699.9294/ firstname.lastname@example.org.
