Holy Week and Easter at Holy Cross

This year, as Christians have been doing for millenia, we will once again walk the journey of Christ's last days, and feel the familiar highs and lows of the Holy Week experience. While we can see a light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are not quite there yet. So for Holy Week 2021 we will have a full complement of Holy Week services live-streamed for our congregation, at least one service for every day of Holy Week.

Join us at

Palm Sunday

March 28th, 9 am

Hosanna! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!

Our Palm Sunday worship will include a Blessing of the Palms (which will be available for pick-up after the service) and will end with the story of Christ's Passion.

Holy Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday

March 29th, 30th, 31st, 7 pm

Walking the way of the Cross.

The stories of Holy Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday are crucial for helping us understand how Jesus and his disciples moved from the highs of Palm Sunday's triumphal entry to the lows of his arrest and crucifixion. This year we'll have Evening Prayer each night at 7 pm so we can hear some often forgotten stories of Holy Week.

Maundy Thursday

April 1st, 7 pm

Do this in remembrance of me.

We'll reflect on Christ's act of service in washing his disciples feet, and have the traditional stripping of the altar.

Good Friday

April 2nd, 7 pm

It is finished.

We'll remember Christ's ultimate sacrifice for the world with the Proper Liturgy for Good Friday including the Veneration of the Cross.

Holy Saturday

April 3rd, 9 am

In the midst of life we are in death.

Holy Saturday was the day that Christ's body lay in the tomb. It is a special day for those who are mourning the loss of a loved one. The Holy Saturday liturgy is often overlooked, but you are invited to join us for a brief service of scripture and prayer for those who have died.

Easter Vigil

April 3rd, 7 pm

This is the night...

A service when we remember that Christ's light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. We will kindle the new fire, light the paschal candle, hear stories from salvation history, renew our baptismal vows, and proclaim that Christ is risen!

Easter Day

April 4th, 9 am

Early on the first day of the week...

Join us on Easter morning to celebrate Christ's resurrection with story, song, and prayer!
