Holy Week at CAPC
by Lynn Santulli | April 15, 2019Holy Week Offerings at CAPC
Holy Week is taken very seriously at CAPC and we invite you to journey with us. Following are the highlights of the week:
Palm Sunday - joyous chaos yields to palm waving, soaring hymns as we celebrate Jesus' entry into Jerusalem (and our hearts). Sunday, April 14 at 10:30 am.
Maundy Thursday - Thursday, April 18 at 7:30 pm - Christ instituted the sacrament of Communion as a commandment at the Last Supper, we honor that sacrament and offer the ritual of washing of the feet (voluntary) and at the end of service we strip the chancel.
Good Friday/Tenebrae Service - the Service of Shadows or Tenebrae is the retelling of the last hours of Jesus' life on earth through readings and music. In the soaring sanctuary of CAPC, this retelling is especially powerful. Friday, April 19 at 7:30 pm.
And of course we joyously celebrate Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday, April 21 at 10:30 am! Congregation is invited to sing portions of Handel's Messiah at the end of service (always a favorite) and children and families are invited to a special coffee fellowship which includes games for the children and special treats for all.
Come, let us worship our God!
