Ash Wednesday and Ash Wednesday Seed Planting
On Ash Wednesday, worshippers mark the beginning of Lent with a Service of Worship. For those who desire, the imposition of ashes will be available in-person. For those who are unable to attend in person, one way to receive ashes at home is to use the ash from the wick of an extinguished tea light candle to make the sign of the cross on your hand (please let the wick cool first).
Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter, when Christians commemorate Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem.
Good Friday service is held to remember the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. As part of the service, our Chancel Choir will perform Sir John Stainer’s beloved oratorio, “The Crucifixion.” Premiered in London in 1887, Stainer’s oratorio quickly became a much anticipated Good Friday tradition in England and still holds such a place today. Tuneful and approachable yet powerfully dramatic, this hour long choral work vividly retells the events leading up to Christ’s crucifixion.
