Our jewelry expo is Thursday, April 18th from 5-8 PM. There will be light refreshments. All are welcome. Great Mother’s Day gift ideas, bags, clothing, and jewelry.
We follow Jesus’ example of what it means to be a servant through ritual hand washing and see the origins of the Eucharist at the “Last Supper” Jesus shared with his disciples. The altar is stripped as all exit in silence. The “Vigil” is kept through the night following the service. All are welcome!
Stations of the Cross is a series of images and related prayers covering events that Jesus Christ went through on the day of his crucifixion on Mount Calvary. Stations helps Christians make a spiritual connection to the suffering Christ endured on his Passion. It is typically a path of 14 numbered images arranged around the nave of a church. Worshipers stop at each station in order for specific prayers and reflections.
A day to remember the ultimate sacrifice Jesus made for us, so that our sins may be forgiven. Our Tenebrae Service or Service of Darkness is a somber service concluding with a “Strepitus” or loud noise symbolizing the earthquake and agony of creation at the death of Christ. This is Christ’s church, and there is a place for you here.
