Holy Week 2017

Holy Walk, Holy Week

Holy Week brings us to the culmination of not only the season of Lent, but our Christian story as a people drawn together as followers of Christ, broken, repentant, reconciled to God in Christ and renewed by remembering his death, proclaiming his resurrection and awaiting his coming again in glory.  Join with Christians around the world who walk with Christ through the story of this HOLY WEEK.  Enter the story, walk with Christ, and celebrate the discovery of the empty tomb when we arrive on the other side, celebrating EASTER together.

It begins Palm Sunday, April 9. Join the Canterbury Downtown community at Grace Church as members of our campus ministry give voice to the Passion story of Christ at the Palm Sunday service at 6 p.m.

– Chaplain Mary Cat
