What's Going On:

THIS IS THE WEEK WE CALL HOLY

You are invited to walk with Jesus through His last week on earth. We begin with PALM SUNDAY, when we are part of the crowd in the Holy City of Jerusalem that first welcomes Him as our Savior, and then calls for His death – “Crucify Him!” Gather with Him at His Last Supper on MAUNDY THURSDAY as we hear His words of love – “This is my body, given for you.” Stand at the Cross with Him on GOOD FRIDAY as He dies an agonizing death for your sins. And rejoice in wonder and awe on EASTER SUNDAY at the miracle of the Resurrection – Jesus is alive, yesterday, today, and forever! What a privilege to be able to take this holy journey with our Lord in the week we call Holy.

Maundy Thursday, April 17 7:00 p.m. Holy Eucharist and Stripping of the Altar.

Good Friday, April 18 Stations of the Cross, 12 noon at St.Peter’s

Good Friday Liturgy April 18 – 7:00 p.m. Joint Service at Christ Church Quaker Farms

Easter Sunday, April 20 ONE service at 9:00 a.m. with special music and all the joy of the resurrection.

SPRING MUSICAL--“HAPPILY FOREVER AFTER” @ Christ Church Quaker Farms.


April 25, 7:00pm.  Knights! Castles! Princesses! Dragons! Join Brooke and her friends on an amazing trek in a very faraway land. When the Carpenter from another kingdom brings the troubling news that their castle (built far away from the King), is actually built on sand and will not withstand the coming storm, they hesitantly choose to follow him as he has promised
to show them this "better Kingdom" This wonderful family musical about the kingdom of God will be performed on Friday April 25th at 7PM Tickets are $5/each at door of Christ Church Quaker Farms. However. St. Peter's members are encouraged to purchase them in advance, as there will be a limited number of seats available. You may call CCQF @ 203-888-4936.
