Maundy Thursday

The Holy Triduum (pronounced tri-doo-um). “Triduum” is a Latin word that simply refers to “Three Days”. Early Christians thought of this as one service that spanned three days. These were not three separate services but one single service. Therefore there is one worship folder and there is no benediction (sending with a blessing) until the very end.

“Maundy” means “command”. During this time we will retell the story of the Last Supper that Jesus shared with his disciples when he commanded them to love one another by washing each other’s feet. We will offer a foot washing station for those who desire to participate in this act, we will receive communion, and finally, we will strip the Altar of all of the paraments to symbolize the darkness of the Son of God’s journey to the cross.

Good Friday - Shadows

The Holy Triduum (pronounced tri-doo-um). “Triduum” is a Latin word that simply refers to “Three Days”. Early Christians thought of this as one service that spanned three days. These were not three separate services but one single service. Therefore there is one worship folder and there is no benediction (sending with a blessing) until the very end.

Our service continues on Good Friday when we will have a very powerful liturgy called “Shadows”. The “Shadows” liturgy marks Jesus’ journey to Golgotha. We will listen to scripture and sing while we reflect on Jesus’ passion and death. The last part of this night is the striking of the “Strepitus”. This loud noise marks the closing of Jesus’ tomb. As we leave we will observe The Stations of the Cross.

Easter Vigil

The Holy Triduum (pronounced tri-doo-um). “Triduum” is a Latin word that simply refers to “Three Days”. Early Christians thought of this as one service that spanned three days. These were not three separate services but one single service. Therefore there is one worship folder and there is no benediction (sending with a blessing) until the very end.

Our service concludes on Saturday night at a liturgy called The Great Easter Vigil. In the Bible days begin at dusk: “There was evening and morning: the first day.” So, beginning at nightfall, we gather to celebrate Jesus’ victory over death by recounting the entire story of God’s salvation from Creation to New Creation. This night is unforgettable. We pull out all the stops and declare that Jesus is alive and break the Lenten silence by saying, “Alleluia! He is risen!”

This is also the night where we baptize or reaffirm the baptism of The Catechumenate!

Easter Sunday Brunch

Since we party so hard liturgically during Holy Week with Palm Sunday, The Triduum: Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, & the Easter Vigil…

We thought there was no better way to end the week than by gathering at our normal Sunday morning time for brunch! No liturgy…just good brunch, good people, good times!

Pentecost with Justin Morgan

Pentecost with Justin Morgan

Pentecost is the season when we coöperate with God the Holy Spirit’s desire to truly renew the image and likeness of God in the Church. This 100+ day season marks the time when we do not resist God the Holy Spirit’s work of perfecting us. Like a fire, the Holy Spirit purges, purifies, and refines us. Like water, the Holy Spirit nourishes us and cultivates the fruit of the Spirit among us. Like wind, the Holy Spirit moves us out into the world into the next season as we work for God’s Kingdom.

We welcome the Rev. Justin Morgan to our community this day. Justin pastors Church on Morgan in Downtown Raleigh, NC. Jacob and Justin are friends and colleagues who share ideas and best practices with one another.
