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.
"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
We invite you to take gather together in your homes with your friends and church family to imitate our Lord who gathered with his disciples in the upper room for their Last Supper. There he washed their feet, initiated the sacrament of Communion, and prepared himself for his work on the cross. We have a Maundy Thursday Table Liturgy available that leads you through the observance of this holy day. You can pick up a copy of this liturgy on the Communications Table on Sunday or download it here.
