Holy Week Services at St. John’s 

Sunday, April 2 8:00 & 10:30 a.m. – Palm Procession & Passion Sunday  

Divine Services begin with the children processing with palm branches and song. Then we have a special responsive reading of the Passion of our Lord as recorded in St. Matthew’s Gospel 


Monday, April 3 – Wednesday, April 5 7:00 p.m. – Evening devotional services 

Brief services of the Word focusing on the Passion of our Lord Jesus from Mark, Luke, & John 


Thursday, April 6 7:00 p.m. – Divine Service with Holy Communion 

We celebrate the Sacrament and have the traditional stripping of the altar, emptying the chancel of all the decorations just as Jesus was stripped and beaten on His way to the cross. 


Friday, April 7 12:30 p.m. – The Chief Service of the Word 

This service reads through the Passion and Suffering of our Lord Jesus along with hymns and prayer 

7:00 p.m. – Tenebrae Vespers 

The Tenebrae service is an ancient service of prayer, using Psalms about the Messiah and the Passion reading while candles are extinguished, reminding us how the very Light of the World was put to death. 


Saturday, April 8 7:00 p.m. – The Easter Vigil 

This is to be a night of watching.  We listen to a long history of salvation, redress the altar for Easter, and offer the Sacrament of the Altar 


Sunday, April 9 6:00 a.m. – Easter Sunrise Divine Service  

This celebration of the Resurrection concludes the Vigil from the night before. Hasten to the Church as the women went early to the tomb to discover that the Lord is risen! He is risen, indeed!  

8:00 a.m. – Easter Day Divine Service  

10:30 a.m. – Easter Day Divine Service 

The resurrection of Christ is the miracle that changed the history of the world. It’s why we worship together every Sunday as a little Easter, so it goes without saying that Easter Sunday itself is the Chief Feast of the Church Year.  See you there! 


We will be offering live video streaming on Sunday mornings at 8:00 A.M.

It will also be saved to (FaceBook video library) for viewing later.
