2014 Holy Week Services
Palm Sunday (4/13) 8 & 10AM
The liturgy of the palms and the reading of the passion narrative mark this day’s observance of both joy and sadness. Palms will be distributed at both services and the 10:00 a.m. worship will begin with the traditional Palm Sunday procession from the undercroft. There will be a trumpeter at both services.
Maundy Thursday (4/17) dinner/service at 7:00 pm
This evening service will be an informal Last Supper with connection to the traditional Jewish Sabbath meal and/or Seder in the undercroft. The symbolic washing of feet will be included as well as special, highly participatory, Holy Week learning centers for children and families. This service will conclude with the stripping of the altar in the quiet and darkened church.
Good Friday (4/18) 12:00 pm at All Saints'
There will be an hour long ecumenical service at All Saints' of collects, scripture readings and organ music. Central to this service is a particularly beautiful chanting of the Passion Gospel according to St. John and the bringing in of a large wooden cross.
Good Friday (4/18) 7:30 pm at Brewster Boathouse
7:30 pm 1st Congregational Church-All Saints has been invited to join in their service at the Pinckney Boathouse on Brewster Campus.
Easter Vigil, Saturday (4/19) 7:00 pm
The drama of the Great Vigil begins with a bonfire, a tradition started by St. Patrick of Ireland, and then proceeds into the darkened church for the procession of the Paschal Candle. Much of the service is conducted by candlelight symbolizing our waiting for the new light of Easter and ends with the reaffirmation of our baptismal vows and the first Eucharist of Easter. This will be a child friendly service with the bonfire and candles, lessons told as stories rather than read, shells for each child from the baptismal waters and a participatory Eucharist. We will be baptizing a baby during this year’s service.
Easter Sunday services will be at 8 am and 10 am, please come and enjoy the trumpet, music and the Easter peacock.
