Holy Week and Easter
On Palm Sunday (24th March), Paul Perry will be coordinating a dramatic reading of the Passion narrative at St Mary’s.
Then, on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of Holy Week there will be at St Mary’s a 7pm Reflection followed by Compline. On Maundy Thursday there will be a 7pm Eucharist of the Last Supper followed by a Watch of Prayer.
On Good Friday there will be a Walk of Witness starting at the Catholic Church at 10am, and concluding with hot cross buns at the Methodist Church. Camilla Campling-Denton will be leading an all age ‘Whistle-Stop Tour Through Lent’ at St Mary’s, 12noon-1pm. At 2pm there will be a Meditation for the Last Hour in St Mary’s, a shortened form of the traditional Three Hours’ service held in previous years. The day will conclude with a 7pm Sung Meditation, William Lloyd Webber’s 'The Saviour'.
Our first Easter Service this year will be an Easter Day Dawn Service at Easby Abbey: at 6:30am Revd Julia Reid will be leading a Service of Prayer and Praise, when Christians of all denominations will join together to proclaim the Resurrection. Easter Day services at St Mary’s will be 8am Holy Communion and 10am Parish Communion.
