Got questions about Anglicanism? We have a course for that! On Wednesday evenings in April, the Introduction to Anglicanism course will explore the history, theology, and worship of the Anglican tradition. Topics will include Anglican history and theology, worshipping with the Book of Common Prayer, sacraments, and spiritual rhythms of the church year. The final week of the course on May 6 will explore Confirmation. If you have any interest in learning more about what it means to be an Anglican Christian or how to deepen your understanding and engagement in Anglican worship, please join us for this course. Dates are as follows: Wednesdays, April 8 – May 6, 7 – 8:30 pm.
April 2 at 7pm in the New Catacombs
This year we will mark Maundy Thursday with a traditional Seder meal, entering more fully in to the Passover Meal that Jesus hosted for his disciples on the night before he died. We will begin in the New Catacombs at 7pm and then, at the point in the narrative where they went out to the Garden of Gethsemane, we will go in procession to the Nave for the Stripping of the Altars. We will conclude at 9pm. Childcare will be provided for babies – 3 year olds in rooms 101 and 102 beginning at 6:45pm. Children age PreK – 5th grade will be in Hunt Rooms, where our own Fr. Jack Gabig will lead the children through a rich, interactive Seder of their own.
April 3 from Noon – 3pm
Because these are the hours Jesus hung on the cross, we encourage worshippers to keep vigil for the entire three hour period, but the service will easily allow people to spend any one hour (Noon, 1pm or 2pm) without loss of continuity. Childcare for babies – 3 year olds will be in rooms 101 and 102 from 11:45am – 3:15pm. We will also have three, 1-hour lessons, back to back, for PreK – 5th grade in the Hunt Rooms. Each of the lessons will begin on the hour.
6am Easter Vigil
The first service of Easter Day begins with darkness and includes the singing of the Exsultet, or Song of Praise, over the year’s Easter Candle, the passing of the Light of Easter, scripture, silence and Holy Baptism. Please remember to bring your bells to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord! Childcare is not provided at the Vigil. We will provide coffee and breakfast in the parish hall after the Vigil. Please join us.
9am and 11am Services
Our 9am and 11am worship will be much the same, but with songs, hymns and anthems to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord on Easter Day! Please remember to bring your bells! Childcare will be provided for babies – 4 year olds in rooms 101 and 102. There will be no Sunday School for 5 year olds – 5th Grade. There will be an Easter Egg Hunt for children following both 9am and 11am services. To participate, please meet in the Hunt Rooms at approximately 10:30am or 12:30pm.
