The Great Three Days (Holy Week)

Thursday, April 9, 2020 | Maundy Thursday | Worship at 7:00 p.m. in Saunders Hall
Friday, April 10, 2020 | Good Friday | Chancel Choir Presents The Seven Last Words of Christ by Dubois at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary
Saturday, April 11, 2020 | Easter Vigil | Worship begins in the Columbarium at 8:00 p.m.

Also known as the Easter Triduum, The Three Days is the period of three days that begins with the liturgy on the evening of Maundy Thursday, walks through Christ’s Passion on the cross on Good Friday, and reaches its high point in the Easter Vigil followed by Easter Worship on Sunday. It recalls the passion, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, as portrayed in the canonical Gospels. Through these services, we hope that you will experience an immersive worship experience journeying with Christ through his passion on the cross.
