2020 Holy Week Schedule
at Christ Church

Sunday – April 5 – Palm Sunday

8:00AM – Eucharist & Distribution of Palms
9:30AM – Eucharist with full choir & Distribution of Palms


Thursday – April 9 – Maundy Thursday

7:30PM Choral Holy Eucharist & Foot Washing

We will start with an Agape meal. “Agape” (Ah-GAH-pay) means “loving-kindness” in Greek. Modeled after “The Last Supper,” it is a simple meal with special prayers. Then we will process down to the sanctuary for choral Eucharist. The space will look different, with lots and lots of candles (like Taize services, if you have been to one of those) and a new and different seating arrangement. For anyone who wishes to participate, foot washing is part of this service, in remembrance of Jesus doing this for his disciples on that night.

Are you wondering what “Maundy” means? It comes from the Latin word for “commandment,” and refers to the commandment Jesus gave his disciples that night, to love each other as he has loved them.

Please join us! YOUR presence will complete the evening.


Friday – April 10 – Good Friday – 12:00PM
