HOLY WEEK at Holy Spirit
The most significant week of the year for Christians takes us from the heights of cheers and palm branches, to the depths of death upon the cross, and back to the new fire, rebirth and celebration of the resurrection. Fully enter into magnitude of this time by being present for each of these times of sacred worship.
The Sunday of the Passion – April 13th, 9:30 a.m.
We begin with the Gospel procession with palms and transition to hear of the events of the Passion of our Lord.
The Great Three Days
The Triduum: one service over three days,
Maundy Thursday – April 17th at 7:00 p.m.: On the night before his death, we hear how our Lord Jesus provides the example of humble service through the holy meal, washing feet and leaving a great commandment to love. We transition to his arrest and trial with the stripping of all worship appointments.
Good Friday – April 18th at 12:00 noon and 7:00 p.m.: The service continues as we hear the story of the death and burial of Jesus and venerate the cross on which held the salvation of the world.
The Great Vigil of Easter – April 19th at 7:00 p.m. This year Holy Spirit hosts the culmination of the Triduum. The service of light leads us to hear stories of salvation history, to a remembrance of our baptism and the celebration of the first Eucharist of the resurrection.
The Resurrection of Our Lord
Easter Sunday – April 20th at 9:30 a.m. Our patience and mediation during Lent and the three days is rewarded with the glorious words and songs of resurrection. Let the celebration begin!
