Holy Week And Easter – The Triduum

Lent concludes at the beginning of the Maundy Thursday Liturgy. The Maundy Thursday Liturgy, the Good Friday Liturgy, and the Easter Vigil/Easter Day Liturgies all together are actually one liturgical observance called the Triduum (Three-day celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ). Our celebration of the Resurrection finds its most full expression when we together walk with our Lord through the events of Holy Week.

Maundy Thursday: washing the feet of his disciples. Jesus instituting the Holy Eucharist at his Last Supper. Watching with Jesus in the garden.

Good Friday: Standing with Jesus before Pilate. Walking the way of the cross with Jesus. Standing with Jesus at the Cross. Watching as his body is taken down, wrapped in a shroud, and carried to the tomb.

Holy Saturday: Waiting

Easter Vigil and Easter Day: The Lord is Risen! The Lord is Risen Indeed! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Please make every effort to join our yoked congregations in each of the services of Holy Week and Easter, so that we might together celebrate the fullness of the Resurrection.

Faithfully,

Fr. Ted
