LENT & HOLY WEEK 

Family Holy Week Service, Thursday, April 6 at 5:30 pm

        Children and their parents gather for an interactive and experiential walk through some of Jesus’ last week, including Jesus sharing bread and wine at the Last Supper and washing the feet of his disciples.  Through story and song, we'll prepare to enter the Mystery of Easter in this engaging service designed especially for children.

Palm Sunday, April 9, 8:30 and 10:30 am, 5:30 pm

Maundy Thursday - Agape dinner at 6 pm

        Reminiscent of Jesus' last supper with his friends, we'll gather for a meal in the church, followed by an opportunity for foot washing and Eucharist.

Good Friday - 7:30 pm

        We'll pray and hear the passion story.  The Stations of the Cross are available following the service.

Easter Vigil - 8 pm

        We’ll start outside the church just after sunset to light the new paschal fire, then continue into the church for this ancient and holy service which marks the end of Lent and ushers in Easter.  The service is followed by a celebration with champagne and desserts.

EASTER SERVICES

     Festive Easter services are offered at 8:30 and 10:30 am and 5:30 pm.  There will be an Easter Egg hunt following both morning services.

 

St. Aidan's is a worshipping community, welcoming people wherever they are on their faith journey. Our purpose is to nurture and develop faith in God and equip individuals for ministry in all aspects of their lives.  We invite others to join us as we strive to grow in love of God and neighbor.  This is the work to which Christ calls us.   All are welcome at St. Aidan's!

People gathered at Altar
