Join us for Holy Week and Easter at St. John’s!
We hope you’ll join your St. John’s family in these various ways! All Zoom connection and other information can be found at https://www.stja.ca/2021/program-updates/
- Palm Sunday, March 28, 8:30am (spoken service) & 10am (with music/children’s program) Zoom Morning Prayer – Experience the roller coaster and drama of Jesus’ journey from the crowds welcoming him into Jerusalem with palm branches all the way to the agony of the cross. You’re invited to bring a local plant from your garden/household (a branch, some leaves, potted plant) to lift in the air during our virtual “procession”.
- Maundy Thursday, April 1, 7:30pm (online via the Cathedral) – join our larger diocesan family for virtual worship at Christ Church Cathedral. A livestream video will be offered at 7:30pm and will be available afterward also. Links for the Cathedral Maundy Thursday service (as well as other Holy Week services) can be found at https://www.thecathedral.ca/live and https://www.thecathedral.ca/pages/the-way-of-the-cross-and-the-way-of-resurrection.
- Good Friday, April 2, 12noon Zoom worship – Join us on this most holy day, as we recall Jesus’ death on the cross. There will be sacred music and prayers, and a time of Meditation on the Cross. We invite you to bring a midsized rock/stone (one that can fit into your hand) with you to pray with at this service.
- Easter Sunday, April 4, 8:30am & 10am (with children’s program) Zoom Morning Prayer – the most important day of the church calendar, celebrating the miracle and joy of Jesus’ new life and resurrection, with lots of festive, beautiful music and prayers at both services. We encourage you to dress in your Easter best (however you define that in these unusual times!), and have something colourful to wave in the air each time we hear the word, “Alleluia!”. You are invited also to bring a midsized rock/stone (one that can fit into your hand), which we’ll use as part of a special Easter meditation.
