In Holy Week, the most significant Christian week of the year, we follow the end of Christ’s life from his triumphant entrance in Jerusalem, through his death on the cross, and his resurrection. you are encouraged to participate in as many of the services as possible and to set this week aside as something different in your life. This is an opportunity to see and feel the depths of human suffering that leads to the hope that God offers, even in the darkest hours. This is a journey we take together – please join us!
On Holy Monday, Holy Tuesday, and Holy Wednesday, St. Luke’s has available a labyrinth for contemplative mediation and prayer. The Labyrinth is available to the public from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. in the Assembly Hall. No appointments required. Please take off your shoes to walk it in order to preserve the life of the fabric.
