Maundy Thursday, April 18

Holy Communion at 11:15 am and 7 pm

 The Great Vigil of Easter

The pinnacle of the Three Days.  There is no other night like this one.  Light, story, baptism, renewal of baptismal promises, holy meal.  As you prepare for the Easter Vigil, you are invited to bring a special vessel so that you may join in the procession of pouring water into the place of baptism.
