The first day of Holy Week and the last Sunday in Lent is known as Palm Sunday or the Sunday of the Passion.
We will begin our Palm Sunday service with a gathering of the community in the parish hall (8 a.m. service) or parking lot (10 a.m. service — if the skies are clear). From there we will proceed with the Liturgy of the Palms, distribute the palms for the Blessing of the Palms, and then process into the nave, palms in hand, singing All Glory, Laud, and Honor with gusto. After we are all in place in the pews, we will continue with the collect for the Sunday of the Passion and then dive into the readings of the day.
At that point, the focus of the service will shift away from Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem to the solemnity of his Passion, the events and suffering before and during his death. Thus begins our walk through Holy Week at St. Timothy’s.
Come and experience the deep meaning of this sacred week.
The Maundy Thursday service is at 7 p.m, March 24. We have two Good Friday services, March 25, one at noon (a quiet service without music) and at 7 p.m. (with just a few songs). We will hold the Easter Vigil Eucharist and Celebration at 8 p.m. on Saturday, March 26.
After several days of solemn procession through Holy Week, on Easter Sunday you’ll find our nave alive with color — bursting with flowers, bulging at the seams with happy voices and laughing children with Easter eggs to find and baskets to fill. We are a Resurrection People and Easter Sunday is our Superbowl of Holy Days. AND, on Easter Sunday we see the return of “Alleluia!” in our liturgy. Thanks be to God!
