Join us for Holy Week & Easter at St. John's!

We hope you’ll join us at St. John’s for Holy Week & Easter—whether virtually or in-person—and invite friends and family too!

Note: If a service is listed as “hybrid” it will be in-person and on Zoom.

Everyone of all ages is welcome to attend – we’ll have art supplies available for younger visitors in addition to the special programming listed below. Zoom connection and other information here.

  • PALM SUNDAY, April 2, 8:30am (in-person) & 10am (hybrid) Eucharist – We’ll bless palm crosses in-person, and for those on Zoom, please join our palm procession fun by lifting up a local plant from your garden/household! The 10am service will include an All-Ages Chat and both services will have coffee hour afterward.
  • MAUNDY THURSDAY, April 6, 6pm soup supper (in-person) & 7pm worship (hybrid) – Feel free to join one or both parts of the evening. We’ll enjoy a simple soup supper downstairs with some brief prayers and readings in the Parish Hall at 6pm, and then move upstairs for a 7pm worship service which will include foot washing (for those who would like to participate) and a solemn Stripping of the Altar.
  • GOOD FRIDAY, April 7, 12noon (hybrid) – the church will be open for personal prayer from 11am on (and also after the service), and the Stations of the Cross will be available then as a focus of meditation – art supplies will be available for those drawn to pray in more creative ways! The service will include a Meditation on the Cross.
  • EASTER SUNDAY, April 9, 8:30am (in-person) & 10am (hybrid) Eucharist – Both services will have Eucharist and coffee hour, and the 10am will include children’s programming and an Easter Egg hunt after the service. We encourage you to dress in your Easter best (however you define that!), and to bring bells to ring (and other gentle noisemakers) or something colourful to wave in the air each time we hear the word “Alleluia!”.
