Join us for the food that Jesus ate at a Mediterranean meal, in the Parish Hall on April 13 at 5:30 p.m. Simpler fare will be offered for children. We will remember the kind of meal that Jesus had with his disciples and the compassion they shared.
At 7 p.m., our commemoration of the last supper will take place in the church, where Jesus took up a towel, and in a soothing expression of service washed his disciples’ feet. We may join in following Jesus’ humble service. Those who wish may sit with sympathetic joy! The bread and wine of communion is taken to the tabernacle in the chapel, where it is kept for the service on Good Friday. The ornaments of the church are removed so that it is stark and bare for our Good Friday observance.
Please join us for social hour and dinner in the Parish Hall, celebrating the hard work and dedication of all Saint Paul’s volunteers. Presentation from Grant recipients to follow

DEADLINE EXTENDED – RSVP by April 23
These are the three concluding days of Holy Week: the Last Supper (Maundy Thursday), the Passion (Good Friday), and Holy Saturday, concluding with the Great Vigil of Easter. There is no blessing after the Maundy Thursday worship. The service does not end. It just extends into Good Friday. There is also no blessing at the Good Friday worship. That, too, simply extends itself into the Great Vigil of Easter, where finally we come to a blessing. The service of communal love on Thursday leads to self-giving love on Friday, and finally, victorious love at Easter. It is all one divine worship.

4.14.17 Good Friday Noon & 7pm service
4.15.17 The Great Vigil of Easter 7pm

- Tristis est Anima Mea – Orlando de Lassus
