Holy Week and Easter 2021

Holy Week and Easter 2021

This week we journey with Jesus toward the cross. We will walk dusty roads, smell the aroma of sweet perfume, sit with friends at the dinner table, and kneel alone in a shadowy garden and pour our hearts out to God; and we will do it all from within the confines of our own home.

Join us as as we travel together to the cross, hold vigil at the grave, and then gather with joy to celebrate our Lord’s glorious resurrection!

Holy Week Daily Devotional (print version)

Our Holy Week Daily Devotional includes prayers, scripture readings, and times for reflection for each day of Holy Week, beginning on Palm Sunday and culminating with Saturday night’s Easter Vigil.
