Holy Week And Easter Activities Offered At St. Paul’s Church
Thursday, April 10, 2014
Palm Sunday kicks off a full schedule of Holy Week worship events at historic St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in downtown Chattanooga. All are welcome.
Beginning at 8 a.m. with The Blessing of the Palms and The Passion Sunday Eucharist, all are welcome to
attend a special Speaker Series presentation by St. Paul’s clergy for Palm Sunday at 9:15 a.m. in Key-Andrews Hall. Worship continues at 10:15 a.m. as we gather outside for The Blessing and Procession of the Palms to The Passion Sunday Eucharist.
A short 30-minute Eucharist service is available Monday through Thursday during Holy Week at 12:05 p.m. On Maundy Thursday, April 17, St. Paul’s also hosts The Institution of the Holy Eucharist and Stripping of the Altar at 6 p.m. On Good Friday, April 18, all are welcome to attend The Stations of the Cross (with incense) at 11 a.m. with a one-hour Liturgy for Good Friday beginning at Noon.
On Easter Eve, April 19, join us for a special evening of worship by candlelight at The Great Vigil, the First
Eucharist of Easter at 7:30 p.m. The Great Vigil of Easter began in the early years of Christianity (before there were Episcopalians). It was — and remains — the First Eucharist of Easter and a special time for baptisms. A reception follows the worship service.
St. Paul’s hosts two Festival Eucharist services on Easter Sunday, April 20 – at 9:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. (arrive early). Both worship services feature Flowering of the Cross, and music with choirs, brass, tympani, and organ. Incense at 11:15 a.m.
