LENT

I invite you, therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God's holy Word.

Ash Wednesday
February 14, 2023
Noon (12:10 PM)
4:30 PM

NOON (12:10 PM) and 4:30 PM
Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent.  Many Christians receive ashes on their foreheads to symbolize the dust from which God made us. We will offer a two opportunities for you to receive ashes at Prince of Peace: These abbreviated services will include distribution of Communion and Imposition of Ashes. 

Stations of the Cross
Fridays 7:00 PM

Stations of the Cross at 7 pm on Fridays during Lent.

The Stations of the Cross (or Way of the Cross) is a devotion to the Passion of Christ which recalls a series of events at the end of Jesus' life from his condemnation to his burial. The Way of the Cross imitates the practice of visiting the places of Jesus' Passion in the Holy Land by early Christian pilgrims.

Palm Sunday
March 24, 2024

9:30 AM The Liturgy of the Palms. Service will begin in church yard, weather permitting.

The Sunday of the Passion or Palm Sunday begins the last week of Lent, known as Holy Week. The dual nature of the Liturgy for this Sunday is evident from the title, the Sunday of the Passion. It begins with the pomp and glory of the triumphal entry into Jerusalem with shouts of "hosanna" to our King.  These hosannas soon change to "Crucify him, crucify him," as the Passion is narrated and dramatically proclaimed.

Maundy Thursday
March 28, 2024

6:00 PM Soup & Bread Supper
Join us for a time of fellowship with a simple soup and bread supper from 6:00 p.m. - until about 6:45 pm.

 

7:00 PM Proper Liturgy with Foot Washing, Holy Eucharist & Stripping of the Altar.

The Maundy Thursday liturgy recreates the events around the last Supper. At the Passover meal, Jesus institutes the Eucharist with the words: "do this in remembrance of me".   During the meal Jesus, on bended knee embraces the role of servant, washes His disciples feet and then extends the mandate: "as I have done, now you must do."  The service ends abruptly with the stripping of the altar and chancel, and the reserved sacrament of Our Lord's Body and Blood is carried and placed on the Altar of Repose.  We depart in silence reflecting on all that the Lord has done to show so great a love for us.

Our Chapel will stay open after the service until 9PM for prayer and reflection at the altar of repose.
