The Three Sacred Days

Invite Jesus to join you for dinner

Maundy Thursday
Thursday, April 1

Online at 7:00pm

On the night before Jesus is arrested, he invites us to gather for a family meal. Jesus promises when we remember him that he is with us.

 

  • Prepare a simple meal.

  • Set an extra place at your table for Jesus.

  • Before we eat, we wash our hands. On the night before he's arrested, Jesus washes his friends' feet as a sign of love. Let's wash our hands or the hands of someone in our family as a sign of love.

  • After dinner, join the Prayer Watch with Jesus. Sign up here.

  • Post pictures on social media of your dinner and night with Jesus. Tag the Cathedral and use the hashtags: #HolyWeekatCCC and #CCCforLex

On the day we remember that Jesus gave his life for the world, the church is called to grieve and pray. We offer prayers for the whole human family. Because God's love this day is so great, and our need is so deep, these expansive prayers know no bounds.
 

  • Light a candle or a child-friendly electric or battery-operated candle.

  • Offer prayers for those we love but see no longer. Pray for our city. Pray for our world.

  • Support the ministries of the dioceses of the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East by donating to the Good Friday Offering here.

  • Post pictures on social media of your prayers for the world God loves. Tag the Cathedral and use the hashtags: #HolyWeekatCCC and #CCCforLex

Easter Vigil

Following the Great Sabbath, the church gathers to watch for signs of new life. On this night, Christ overcomes death. We move from death to life, from defeat to hope.

 

  • This is the night that enlightens the world with hope. Give thanks for the gift of baptism, for dying and rising with Christ to new life.

  • Get quiet. Breathe in, breathe out. Listen for earth breathing. Listen for signs of new life. Give thanks for rest, refreshment, and peace.

  • Color some alleluias, both children and adults, to post on your door or in your window for Easter. Download them here!

  • Post pictures on social media of ringing in the joy of Easter. Tag the Cathedral and use the hashtags: #HolyWeekatCCC, #EasteratCCC, and #CCCforLex

Easter Offering

 

As we move through Holy Week, your Cathedral clergy and staff are fully engaged in ministry. The pastoral care, outreach, worship, and formation ministries of the Cathedral are offering hope each day. Supporting the Cathedral ministries is as important as ever. Each year, our Easter Offering is an important part of our Holy Week observance. Though we are unable to make our Easter Offering in person, you can make your offering in any of these ways:
