HOLY WEEK | April 14-21
Follow our Lord this Holy Week, from his triumphal entry, through his suffering and death, to the glory of his resurrection
All we like sheep have gone astray;
we have turned every one to his own way,
And the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
Good Friday is a most somber day, appropriately marked by fasting, abstinence, and penitence, leading us to focus on Jesus and the meaning of his cross. The Lord of Life was rejected, mocked, scourged, and then put to death on the cross. The faithful are reminded of the role which their own sin played in this suffering and agony, as Christ took all sin upon himself, in obedience to his Father’s will. By the cross we are redeemed, set free from bondage to sin and death.
The cross is a sign of God’s never-ending love for us. It is a sign of life, in the midst of death.
Service begins at noon. See you there!
