Holy Week at Emmanuel
past Sunday began our Holy Week remembrance as we journey with Jesus to
the cross and beyond to the celebration of his resurrection! What
an opportunity, in this the most significant week of the Christian
year, to join with one another and with Jesus in this healing,
redeeming, empowering journey!
Maundy Thursday April 17 7:30pm
this night we remember the Lord's last supper with his disciples in
which he washed their feet and instituted the sacrament of communion.
Good Friday April 18 12-3pm and 7:30pm
year we will be commemorating the seven last words of Jesus. During our
time of worship, Fr. Rob and Mo. Lyn will offer reflections and then we
will view the artwork of seven different Emmanuelites who created an
artistic expression of each Biblical passage. A deeply moving way to be
with Jesus at the foot of the cross.
Easter Vigil April 19 7:30pm
this candlelight service we remember the promises of God, proclaim the
resurrection of Jesus, witness the baptism of Kimberly, Katelyn, Kaylany
and Katie, renew our own baptism and celebrate communion. A
beautiful and moving service!
Easter April 20 8:15 and 10am
join the saints and angels in this glorious celebration of the risen
life of Jesus. Bring bells for the Gloria, flowers for the cross, and if
you are able, plastic eggs with treasures for the kids! The choir will
be singing and communion ringing!
