Holy Week Services at St. Philip

While Easter, the resurrection, is celebrated every Sunday, Holy Week is like one great Sunday. It begins with a triumphal (perhaps sarcastically so) entrance into Jerusalem, and continues through the Great Three Days—the Triduum. The week forms one long, ancient, liturgy that begins with celebration, moves into compassion and forgiveness, walks us through our fear-filled and violent rejection of God, and ends in the ultimate grace of God’s persistent love for all creation. COME JOIN US!
