Recent News & Announcements
To experience the fullness of the Easter, one truly needs to attend all the parts of what could be reasonably called one service: Maundy-Thursday with its emphasis on the “mandate” or commandment, then Good Friday a day of deep darkness and absence then the Great Vigil or if unavailable for a Saturday evening service, the Easter Sunday service.
These three services compose the Paschal Triduum (the three days) which completes the story of the passion, death, burial of Jesus and the announcement of his resurrection with the ringing of bells and the burning of the new fire.
The Great Vigil is one of the most ancient of services in our church year. It recalls to our minds the darkness of life before the light of Christ in the world as well as the story of the and ancients as they made their way sometimes hearing and sometimes ignoring the prophets sent to them. Finally the priest yells to the world that Easter has come “Christ IS risen” and the people loudly respond with joy. These are the Holy Days of our faith, please do not let anything interfere with your celebration of them.
