Good Friday - The Seven Last Words of Christ from the Cross
In this meaningful Good Friday service, we will hear meditations on each of the seven words of Christ from the cross by Deacon Jay Thomas. Each meditation will be followed by music from The Seven Last Words of Our Savior on the Cross by Josef Haydn. It will be played by the Ars Viva String Quartet led by Fr. Heatherington. As you meditate on each word, Jesus' suffering on that Good Friday so long ago will echo in your heart.

“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34).
“You will be with Me in Paradise” (Luke 23:43).
“Woman, behold your son; behold your mother!” (John 19:26-27).
“Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27:46, from Psalm 22:1).
“I thirst!” (John 19:28).
“It is finished!” (John 19:30).
“Father, ‘into Your hands I commit My spirit’” (Luke 23:46, from Psalm 31:5).

The Great Vigil of Easter
Picking up where Maundy Thursday left off, we begin this service in darkness with only the Christ candle and our candles giving light. Then Easter bursts through with lights, bells, a trumpet call, and alleluias! Music will be provided by Michelle Areyzaga, soprano, singing "I Know that My Redeemer Liveth;" Ethan Adams, trumpet; Miles Sutton, keyboard; and Fr. Heatherington, violin.

As Fr. Alan says, "this is the most important service of the year!"

Easter Sunday morning
Alleluia, Christ is risen, He is risen indeed!!
