Holy Week 2014

Posted by: on Apr 2, 2014 | No Comments

Holy Week is the story of what happens to Jesus and his disciples between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday.  The week begins with the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on what is known as Palm Sunday.  The rest of the week includes the final time Jesus was together with his disciples, the institution of the Eucharist, the washing of the disciples’ feet, the arrest and trial of Jesus, his crucifixion and burial, and finally the startling announcement of Easter Sunday morning:  Why do you seek the living among the dead? Jesus of Nazareth is not here.  He is risen.

Our schedule for the observance of Holy Week in our three parishes is as follows:

Palm Sunday            St. John- 8:00am       St. Andrew-10:00am       St. Mark- Noon

Maundy Thursday       St. Andrew       6:00 pm

Maundy Thursday recalls the night that Jesus was together with his disciples for the last time, including his instructions to remember him in a memorial meal which we have come to know as the Holy Eucharist.  The name “Maundy” comes from the Latin, mandatum, from which we get “mandate” or command.  The command that Jesus left with his disciples was basic to the Christian life:  Love one another as I have loved you.

All three parishes of the ECUY are invited to St. Andrew’s to share the observance of Maundy Thursday.  We do not attempt to observe a traditional Jewish seder, or Passover meal; instead, we invite everyone to bring food that comes from a Middle Eastern tradition.  The evening includes Holy Communion in the context of  our meal together, and the (optional) ritual of foot washing.

Good Friday              St. John-8:00 am     St. Andrew-Noon     St. Mark-5:00 pm

Easter Sunday          St. John-8:00 am     St. Andrew-10:00 am     St. Mark- Noon
