Come to St. Peter’s for Holy Week & Easter Services

The Easter Triduum consists of three special services in Holy Week:  Maundy Thursday (April 13), Good Friday (April 14) and the Great Vigil of Easter (April 15).  These services commemorate the Last Supper, Our Lord’s crucifixion and death, and his resurrection, and they are all linked together as one liturgy in three parts.  To participate in all three services is to experience the totality of the Paschal Mystery.  We go from being observers to being participants in Christ’s passion, death, and his passover from death to life in the resurrection. Consider taking the time to experience all or even one of these services this year.  They are all rooted in the ancient liturgies of our church going back to the earliest centuries of its existence.
