Good Friday Worship
April 14 - 15, 2017
Important: This event has already occurred.
- 7:00AM - 7:00AM
We mark the death of Jesus on Good Friday with two services of worship; some peple attend one or the other, many people attend both.
Stations of the Cross, 9:45 am
The Stations of the Cross is an ancient service, where worshippers physically walk from station to station, retracing the last hours of Jesus' life in readings from the Bible and prayers. The service takes place outside (weather permitting), and lasts approximately 50 minutes.
Celebration of the Lord's Passion, 11:00 am
During this service we hear the story of Jesus' arrest, trial, crucifixion and death read by a number of our members, take time to pray at the cross, sing and hear music (a capella, that is, with no instruments), and reflect on what all this means for us today. This service takes place in the church and lasts a little more than an hour.
During our Good Friday services, offerings will be received for the work of the Diocese of Jerusalem, the Anglican Diocese that covers most of the Middle East. The Diocese funds not only churches, but hospitals, schools, and peace-keeping initiatives in that troubled part of the world. Thank you for your generosity.
