Holy Week at Christ Church of the Ascension

Holy Week is finally here. Below you will find important information about attending services online.

Note: ZOOM now requires a password when you join a service or class. Our password is 4015.

These services are central to our understanding of our faith. This is when we come closest to the mysteries of Christ’s death and resurrection. This is the beginning of our new life in him.

Join us. Act out the mysteries at home and with us as we journey to Jerusalem and the cross and tomb together. You will find instructions for new versions of our ancient practices of community. These new practices are especially appropriate this year when we are finding new ways to engage our faith away from each other.

Families have some special opportunities with these services and from Shana. And all of us could use the chance to experience something different.

We can learn a lot from lectures, but we learn more from practice and engaging ourselves. We learn even more as we lead others.

It is vital that we reach out to each other this year. These mysteries are deep and this year may cause us to think and feel differently. We need each other now more than ever.

I am excited to be on this journey with you. God bless our steps, our worship, and our remembrance of his grace this week.

The Very Rev. Daniel P. Richards
Rector, Christ Church of the Ascension
