Holy Week at St. Michael’s Church

Categories: Easter,Events

Please join us for Morning Prayer at 6:30am, each morning of Holy Week.  This is a time suited for preparing your day intentionally oriented in prayer.

On Thursday evening, come worship at the Maundy Thursday liturgy, where we remember Jesus’ mandate (from which the word Maundy is derived) that we love one another as Christ loved us, and that we break bread together in his name.  We will break bread at the altar, and share an agape meal afterwards.  Those wishing to do so are invited to sit vigil at the Memorial Chapel, converted to a Garden of Repose and holding the reserved sacrament that we will distribute at Communion on Good Friday.

The Good Friday liturgy, with communion from reserved sacrament, is at noon.  There will be a Good Friday meditation and reflection at 7:00pm before the Durufle Requiem concert at 7:30pm.

We will gather in the church at 8am Saturday morning for Holy Saturday prayers, which will last less than an hour and invite us to contemplate a world in-between Christ’s death and resurrection.

On Easter Sunday we share a sunrise service with Church of Our Saviour (East Milton) at 6:30am at Hutchinson’s Field, near the corner of Adams Street and Hutchinson Street; 9am Holy Eucharist with Children’s Homily, Baptism, Cathedral Choir and trumpet; Easter Egg Hunt following the 9am service; and 11am Holy Eucharist with Chancel Choir and brass quintet.
