Holy Week 2018

Holy Week 2018

Holy Week is the most important moment of the year for our Church as we journey with Christ towards his passion and death, leading to the joyful celebration of Resurrection on Easter Day. This is the core of our faith as Christians.

Bishop Richard Llewellin, a retired Anglican bishop from Canterbury, England, will be our guest preacher for Holy Week and Easter Day this year.   Bishop Richard will lead daily reflections for us and help us engage deeply with Jesus Christ’s journey to the Cross and through it to Easter joy. His theme for his reflections on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at 4:00pm will be ‘..and each day He taught in the Temple…’.
