Holy Week Services at St. John's

Holy Week Services at St. John's

As we prepare to enter Holy Week, we invite you to join us in worship at St. John’s Church.

  • Join us on Palm Sunday, March 24 for worship as we celebrate Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem with our palms and hosannas at 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Both Sunday services will feature music and Mark’s passion story.

  • Thursday, March 28, at 7:00 p.m. we will commemorate the Last Supper with Holy Eucharist at a Maundy Thursday service.

  • Friday March 29, 12:00 - 3:00 p.m. the church will be open for a self-guided walk through the Stations of the Cross or join Fr. Jerry at 12:00 noon for guided prayer to commemorate Jesus's passion and death on the cross. At 7:00 p.m. Good Friday service we will retell the passion story.

  • We will celebrate Jesus’ resurrection Easter Sunday morning, March 31 at 8:00 a.m. with organ and 10:00 a.m. with choir and brass ensemble and an Easter Egg Hunt following worship.

Maundy Thursday Prayer Vigil, Signup

The practice of keeping watch with our Lord can be traced to Christ’s appeal to His disciples in Gethsemane on the eve of the crucifixion. By keeping an hour of vigil with the Blessed Sacrament, we can answer Jesus with an emphatic “yes”, knowing that we are in the presence of the same Jesus, now veiled in the form of bread and wine, as were the disciples who witnessed His resurrection. The vigil begins Thursday, March 28 after the Maundy Thursday service, and continues through noon on Good Friday.

Sign-up online here. There are spots for multiple participants in each hour. Our goal is to have each hour covered. During the overnight hours, we would like to have more than one person, and preferably at least one male during those hours. Instruction sheets and meditation resources will be provided. This is a very sacred and special time that is meaningful for all who participate, and is a beloved and long standing tradition at St. John’s for Holy Week.

If you have questions or need help signing up, contact Linda Allport at 949.981.3404 or
