Schedule for Holy Week and Easter
Palm Sunday - March 28
We will celebrate Palm Sunday at our Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning services. You can pick up a palm frond from the front of St. Gabriel's on Saturday between 4:00 and 6:00 pm, or on Sunday anytime after 8:00 am. There will also be packets of Palm Sunday and Holy Week activities for children and families.
Maundy Thursday - April 1
Virtual Holy Eucharist - 7:00 pm
A virtual Eucharist worship service will be held on Thursday at 7:00 pm, which will end in the stripping of the altar.
At St. Gabriel's, we hold a vigil on the evening after Maundy Thursday every year. During this vigil, folks are invited to keep watch over the Communion bread as a practice of "staying awake" with Jesus during his last night in this world. The Vigil will be held in-person this year, but to keep everyone as safe as possible, it will be held in the main sanctuary. Read more and sign up for an hour-long timeslot here.
Good Friday - April 2
Solemn Worship - 12:00 noon
We recount Jesus' crucifixion and pray for the world in this worship service with music.
Stations of the Cross - recorded
There will be two recorded services of Stations of the Cross: one for adults (recorded in 2020) and one for children and families (recorded this year). You can find these videos on our Facebook page.
Easter Sunday - April 4
8:00 and 10:30 am, outdoors and in-person
Join us outside on Easter morning to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus in joyful services of prayer and singing! These worship services will take place even if it is frigid or raining (we'll only cancel if it's thunderstorming), so please dress appropriately. There will not be a Saturday evening service on April 3.
