Holy Week and April

April 1 is Palm Sunday. The Liturgy of the Palms and the Liturgy of the Passion are included in this day's worship, along with Holy Eucharist.

On Thursday evening, the 5th, at 6:00, we will share in a light supper, then the Maundy Thursday service with Holy Eucharist - followed by the ritual of stripping the altar in preparation for Good Friday.

On Friday, April 6th, the Good Friday service begins at 12 noon and Stations of the Cross will follow.

Sunday, April 8 is Easter Day. Our service begins at 9:30.

Other activities in April will include an April 29th combined Holy Eucharist service with Christ Church of Newcastle. Members from Christ Church will join us at Good Shepherd at 11:00 for Holy Eucharist and a potluck barbecue to follow. Be assured, a 9:30 Morning Prayer service will also be read on the 29th.

Some changes are in place for our Lenten Soup Suppers. After our first supper last evening, it was decided that we will put off the 'Harvesting Hope' discussions for at least a couple of weeks. The plan now is to concentrate on the meanings behind some of our hymns designated for Lent. Last night, we visited 'Forty Days and Forty Nights'. Join us next week as we discuss another hymn. All are welcome at 6:00 pm on Thursday evenings during Lent.
