Palm Sunday – April 9th:
Join us at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m for Palm Sunday Services
Maundy Thursday – April 13:
This evening begins at 7:00 p.m. with a simple supper that includes storytelling and foot washing. This meal reminds us that at times it is easier to serve than to be served. It is humbling to wash another’s feet but it is also humbling to have yours washed. It can open a new window to experience fully what it means to serve and be served—in doing it together we are all fed. We conclude with a Eucharist in the church and stripping of the altar (in preparation for Good Friday) after which we hear the story of the Garden of Gethsemane and depart in silence as each of us is ready.
Good Friday – April 14:
Join us at 7:00 p.m. This year continues the tradition of a walk through Morristown. It is a Contemporary Stations of the Cross in which we intentionally encounter some of the many ministries that take place all around us in this community. The walk will be approximately one mile, and we will stop at each place for a reading and reflection. (The readings and reflections will be available for those who are unable to walk and wish to remain in the church.) We will return to Redeemer and nail whatever is in our hearts to the cross, after which we depart in silence into the night. The service and walk last about 1 ¼ hours.
The Great Vigil of Easter April 15:
This festive Eucharist begins in darkness at 7:00 p.m. as we gather together to hear stories of our faith and stories of Redeemer, in the chancel. It is an intimate first look at the dawning of Easter and we hope you will join us for a very different experience of the divine.
Easter Sunday – April 16:
Join us at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m for Easter Sunday Services.
8 a.m. – Prayer Book Eucharist in the chapel [a quiet, low key, and contemplative service]
10:30 a.m. – Inclusive Worship Eucharist with Choir [9:30 a.m. during the summer]
Our worship reflects our vision of liberation and justice as living examples of God in action. At the second service we take the use of inclusive language–spoken and written language that intentionally avoids word use that is needlessly gender-specific–seriously as a matter of justice.
