Good day, everyone!
Today – Monday, April 15th – is the Holden Prayer Around the Cross; 7:30pm at Bishophurst’s Lady Chapel. Please join us for a beautifully moving liturgy called “Hunger For God”.
Wednesday, April 15th is the last Lenten Lunch for this year; 12-1pm at Zion Lutheran, SSM (189 Upton Rd). We’ve collected $735 so far for Habitat For Humanity!!
I’m not sure if the usual weekly events are still on since this is Holy Week…Perhaps someone could let me know if there is something happening that I haven’t listed (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For church services during Holy Week and through the Triduum, please visit our deanery website and check out the Recent News post called “Holy Week and Easter Services in Algoma”… https://algomadeanery.com/
For Your Devotions:
Holy Week and the Triduum (the Great Three Days – Maundy Thursday evening until Evening Prayer on Easter Sunday) are the core of our Christian faith. As such, nothing takes precedence over the prayer and worship in which we immerse ourselves this week. We journey with Jesus through the last week of his life – his triumphant entry into Jerusalem, his last meal with the disciples (during which was instituted the Holy Eucharist and the foot washing), his trial and crucifixion, and then we rejoice in the power and hope of his resurrection. All calendar observances that fall on the days during this time are either not observed during 2019 or are moved.
