Join Us This Sunday

Each Sunday we celebrate Communion together at 10:30 am with music, hymns, scripture readings, a sermon and prayers. Although masks are optional, we strongly encourage those worshiping to wear a mask for their own protection and the protection of others. We look forward to welcoming you to St. Paul’s.

Most meaningful part of Holy Week …

The story of this week is so full of significance and meaning for us as we walk with Jesus the way of the cross that leads to the empty tomb of Easter morning. Included as we mark this holy week  …

What is most meaningful to you in your spiritual journey about all that happens this week? And what is it about that part of the story that speaks to you as you grow in your faith and in your relationship with Jesus who was crucified, died and rose from the dead?

    So many images cross my mind as we progress through Holy Week one that stands out is Mary his mother looking up at her son dying on the cross , as a mother I feel for her. What joy she must of felt Easter morning when she realized he was not dead!

      Yes … there are many moments of this week that strike me profoundly. The one of Jesus’ mother Mary at the foot of the cross is especially poignant when I reflect on it through the lens of being a parent myself.

    For me it’s the combination of Good Friday’s sadness and despair and then Easter Sunday’s joy.

    • stpauls says:

      Yes, it is quite the juxtaposition as we enter the whole story through the grief of Friday to the overwhelming joy of Sunday … and isn’t that life too as we know it.

    We were not a very large crowd for our chat on Wednesday, interesting conversation and some laughs too. I realised too, that although we were not close friends, we were friends with a common denominator. Our faith, St. Paul\’s and our shepherd, Mark. Our small crowd along with thousands of other people is following the journey of Jesus through the crowds in Jerusalem and finally to the peace and quiet of the tomb. Then the joy of rebirth on Easter Sunday. Margery.

      It was a very holy time we spent. I was grateful for each one who was there. Together we are marking this week and I feel the sense of privilege and gratitude that although isolated from all of you I can still lead or liturgies and worship with you during this sacred time.
