Come, follow the steps of Jesus with us.
There was a joyous parade with singing and branches, welcoming him into Jerusalem. At 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. we'll hand out palms, present the gospel as reader's theater, and weather permitting circle the block outside.
Tuesday and Wednesday
Jesus spent daytime in the Temple teaching. Offended by buying and selling in the holy place, he forced retailers out. Wednesday evening at 7:00 we'll have a Tenebrae solemn service of readings and prayers.
Jesus shared the sacred Passover meal with his friends, shocking them by washing their feet, and instituting Holy Communion. When he went to pray in a city garden, he was arrested there. We'll have Holy Communion followed by supper together.
Jesus was taken to government officials for questioning. He was severely beaten and insulted by soldiers. An ugly, blood-thirst crowd demanded his execution and he was sentenced to death. At 12:00 noon and 7:00 p.m. we grieve with prayers, stations of the Cross and our most solemn music at 7:00 p.m.
