Our Services for Holy Week 2023
Lead Up To Holy Week-Stations of the Cross and Meal
Join us for Stations or The Way of the Cross on Wednesdays at 6 pm with a meal to follow.
Our last Stations Service is the Wednesday of Holy Week.
If you cannot make it in person, we have a video, Stations of the Cross, and an audio version where you can join from home.
Holy Week Kick-Off Movie Night
To start Holy Week, we invite you to join us for our second annual silent film accompaniment performed live by our organist, Kevin Monteith.
The film is the 1912 Manger to the Cross or Jesus of Naserith, which shows the life of Jesus Christ.
The event is free, but donations are accepted to maintain the organ and music program.
Holy Week starts the week of April 2, with Palm Sunday.
We will meet in Healy Hall at 9 am and process into the church.
Join us, and you can bring a palm home, including palms folded into crosses.
Maundy Thursday – This Event Is Not At St John’s
This year for Maundy Thursday at 6 pm, we are joining the parish of The Church of the Holy Communion, Lake Geneva, in their church home: the church, 320 Broad Street, Lake Geneva, WI 53147. As of now, this service will not be live-streamed.
The Prayer Book liturgy for Maundy Thursday provides for the celebration of the Eucharist and a ceremony of the washing of feet which follows the gospel and homily.
The altar is stripped, and all decorative furnishings are removed from the church after the service.
Join us for Good Friday as we remember the crucifixion of Jesus.
The service is on April 7, time 6 pm, and this service is at St John the Divine with help from parishioners from Holy Communion.
The Great Vigil of Easter
The Great Vigil of Easter was on April 8. at 7:30 pm.
Easter Sunday will be at 9 am on April 9, 2023.
