Holy Week and Easter

All Holy Week and Easter services will be live-streamed on Calvary’s Facebook page, YouTube channel, and website.

Palm Sunday, March 28

10 a.m. Holy Eucharist

Holy Week begins with the remembrance of Jesus’s humble yet triumphant entry into Jerusalem. Our service begins with the Liturgy of the Palms and includes the reading of the Passion Gospel.

Maundy Thursday, April 1

7 p.m. Maundy Thursday Liturgy

On the night before he died, Jesus broke bread with his friends and gave us his final mandate: to love another. Our service includes Holy Eucharist and the stripping of the altar. We end in the darkness, prepared for a long night waiting in Gethsemane.

Good Friday, April 2

12 p.m. Good Friday Liturgy with Stations of the Cross
7 p.m. Good Friday Liturgy

Good Friday marks the death of Jesus on the cross. This solemn service includes the story of Christ’s passion and times of silence and intercession.

 

Way of the Cross: After the mid-day Good Friday liturgy, at 12:45 p.m., gather at the Calvary altar to begin the Way of the Cross. Inside the church, materials will be available for you to pray these traditional meditations on the last moments of Jesus’s life with the artistic renderings that hang in the Calvary nave during Lent. Another group will begin at the same time but will pray the Way of the Cross on a walk through our downtown neighborhood. If you choose to join the walk, dress accordingly, especially with regard to footwear, as the walk will be 2-3 miles. Join us for either local expression of this ancient Good Friday practice.

The Way of the Cross is from the Book of Occasional Services. 

Easter Vigil, April 3

7 p.m. Liturgy

Join us for The Great Vigil of Easter. This service marks the movement from darkness to light as we celebrate the hope given us by Christ’s empty tomb. We gather to light the New Fire, hear readings chronicling God’s saving deeds in history, and celebrate the first Eucharist of Easter.

Easter Day, April 4

8 a.m. Holy Eucharist at Calvary
11 a.m. Holy Eucharist at the Levitt Shell

Easter morning celebrates the risen Christ with songs and shouts of Alleluia! Celebrate the joy of new life at 8:00 a.m. in Calvary’s nave, or at 11:00 a.m. with brass, choir, and children’s chapel at the Levitt Shell.
