Holy Week and Easter Services
“God rules over all the earth: O come let us worship.”
Archbishop Anne Germond and Dean Jim McShane invite you to join us this Holy Week and Easter as we broadcast ‘live’ from St. Luke’s Cathedral the following services.
“Send your Holy Spirit on this oil, that those who in faith and repentance receive this holy unction may be made whole and that those who are sealed with this chrism may share in the royal priesthood of Jesus Christ.”
Holy Thursday – April 9th at noon for the Blessing of Oils
“We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you, because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.”
Good Friday – April 10th at 3pm for The Solemn Intercession and Meditation on the Cross
as we commemorate the passion and death of our Lord Jesus Christ.
“Christ our Passover has been sacrificed for us; therefore let us keep the feast.”
(1 Cor. 5: 7-8)
Easter Sunday – April 12th at 9am for the Ringing of Bells and Liturgy of the Word
as we celebrate Christ’s glorious resurrection and victory over death.
Congregations and individuals are invited to join in the ringing of bells at 9am on Easter Sunday morning to share the good news with family, neighbours, friends, and our communities that through the resurrection of Jesus all things have been made new in him. Alleluia, Christ is Risen!
Congregations are asked not to plan their own online broadcasts during these times so that we may worship together as a diocese in this important time in our lives.
Bulletins, including readings, prayers, and hymns for the above services will be posted on the diocesan website by Monday, March 30th.
In addition to these ‘public’ events we will be posting liturgies for individuals and families to commemorate each of the key moments of the Triduum in their homes.
Archbishop Anne will be live-streaming Evening Prayer on Holy Thursday, Holy Saturday and on Easter evening at 5pm.
ALL services from St. Luke’s Cathedral above will be available for public viewing via
