Easter

LENT … HOLY WEEK & EASTER 2019

 

You are invited to participate in the observance of the last events of Jesus’ life. It is the story of our salvation. By participating in this liturgical drama – your life can be changed and Easter can have new meaning.

There are three special services over Easter called the Tridum. Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and the Saturday Easter Vigil are in fact one service separated in time and tell the story of our salvation. Can I encourage all to attend these three services.
