Stations of the Cross: We will put up Stations of the Cross along the fence in the parking lot behind the chapel (note: different location from last year!). Take some time this week to quietly engage with the images; this practice is especially fitting on Good Friday. Stations are also available online using the link below.
 
Confession is available all week. Email Liz (liz@incarnationanglican.org) to arrange an appointment (over zoom M-Th, or in person at the chapel on Friday). We use the confession liturgy from p. 223 of the 2019 Book of Common Prayer (download here).
Give between now and Easter Sunday to our special Holy Week offering to Partners-Myanmar: learn more.

Confession: During the afternoon Liz will offer times for in-person confession using the 'reconciliation of the penitent' (BCP, p. 223). If you would like to schedule a time with Liz please do so, or just show up to the chapel! Adults between 1-3pm, children 3-4pm. 
The Chapel: The Chapel will be open during the afternoon (1-4pm) for private prayer; come and get used to being in a public worship space again!
 
Tenebrae: We will remember the night of Christ’s crucifixion @7.30pm through a Tenebrae service of reading, song, and silence as we gradually extinguish candles.
Bring to zoom church: A candle. The Tenebrae liturgy will be available by link in the Zoom chat box.

HOLY SATURDAY

SATURDAY, APRIL 3

Sometimes called Silent Saturday, this is a day when we sit in the pain and silence of Christ’s death. It’s an opportunity to mourn. To grieve. You may find yourself feeling the pain of trauma or grief in your own life. There is some merit in sitting with this pain, but do feel free to reach out to a pastor if you need to today. We also encourage you to be deliberate about the things you watch or do or say today. (Note: we are NOT holding an Easter Vigil this year.)
 
Some suggestions for how you engage with the day:
 
• Make lentil soup with vinegar for lunch or dinner, remembering the bitter gall offered to Jesus on the cross. Recipe here
 
• Visit the Stations of the Cross outside the chapel or online if you haven’t yet done so (see above).
 
• If you missed Maundy Thursday or Good Friday services, view them on YouTube.
 
• Spend the evening listening to St. Matthew Passion. It’s long. It’s beautiful. Turn up the sound. Light your votive candle. Place yourself emotionally into the music. Allow it to seep into your soul. Perhaps choose not to do other things while you listen. Simply sit. Worship.
