Between the end of the penitential season of Lent and the beginning of the celebratory season of Easter, the Anglican Church—along with other Christians all around the world—observes a climactic three-day period called the Great Triduum. It begins on Maundy Thursday and reaches its eucatastrophic* high point on Easter morning. During this time, Christians who are able to do so abstain from all food and attend worship services that enable them to walk with Jesus through His betrayal and crucifixion. Only then can we fully delight in the joys of what Easter morning means to us and to the world.

*Eucatastrophe is a beautiful word coined by J. R. R. Tolkien that means “[a] sudden turn of events at the end of a story which ensures that the protagonist does not meet some terrible, impending, and very plausible and probable doom.”

Below is the Holy Week schedule detailing when our church will be worshipping together. Do note when childcare is provided, and that a collection is taken Thursday and Friday for the Poor in Roanoke and Rwanda—our church’s way, and the historic Church’s way, of giving over and above our budget to those in need.
