Welcoming All into God's Peace Together
Holy Week Services
Have you ever attended the full array of Holy Week liturgical services? Holy Week and Easter are the highest holy days of the Christian year, and the Episcopal liturgies are especially moving. Travelling through the week and marking each event through ritual is a powerful spiritual exercise. Please consider attending the full week’s activities if you can – or at least as many as you can. You will not be sorry to experience the beauty and power of Holy Week.
