You are invited to join the worshiping community of St. Margaret's in the central worship services of Holy Week, called the "Triduum," or "Three Great Days."

   Last Weekend on Palm Sunday we commemorated Jesus' arrival in Jerusalem.
   The service of Tenebrae, was yesterday evening, a service of shadows and light, following the passion narrative.
   
    Now on Maundy Thursday we commemorate his Last Supper with his friends.
    And on Good Friday are the services in remembrance of Jesus' crucifixion.

    
   On Saturday night, the Easter celebrations begin with the ancient service, The Great Vigil of Easter, which             
   recounts God's graciousness from the start of creation all the way to Jesus' Resurrection; this is the first of two powerful
   services. The Feast Day of Resurrection, Easter Sunday, follows on March 27th, starting The Great 50 Days of Easter
   that lead up to Pentecost Sunday and the coming of the Holy Spirit.  

   Please join us for any or all of these opportunities for worship; everyone is welcome.
