Holy Week is the culmination of Lent where we follow Jesus through his triumphal entry on Palm Sunday, his humility and preparation on Maundy Thursday, his sacrifice on Good Friday, his waiting on Holy Saturday, and his rising on Easter.
ASH WEDNESDAY| march 6
Join the Trinity Grace Manhattan churches at the Chapel of the Good Shepherd in Chelsea as we observe Ash Wednesday, committing ourselves to the 40 day journey of repentance, fasting and generosity modeled by Christ. That evening we will receive ashes on our foreheads in the shape of the cross and be led into a meditation on the mystery of suffering Love through music, scripture and poetry. No childcare provided, but children are welcome.
PALM SUNDAY | april 14th
"They brought the donkey and the colt and put on them their cloaks, and he sat on them. Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. And the crowds that went before him and that followed him were shouting, 'Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!' And when he entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred up, saying, 'Who is this?' And the crowds said, 'This is the prophet Jesus, from Nazareth of Galilee.'”
- Matthew 21 : 7-11
MAUNDY THURSDAY | april 18th
