Those of the Judeo-Christian faith have now journeyed through the season of Lent beginning on Ash Wednesday. These 40 days have been spent in recognition of our Humanness in God’s call to repentance, prayer, fasting, almsgiving and meditating on the Word of God.

We now face “Holy Week” beginning on Palm Sunday entering into Jerusalem; Maundy Thursday, sharing the Last Supper; Good Friday, watching a crucifixion and Easter Sunday witnessing a resurrection.

We have journeyed “From Ashes to Fire, from Repentance to Rebirth; from Sin and Death to Resurrection and Eternal Life.” These are the faithful observations that we have been given to recover and celebrate again in our common worship. All are invited to share in the observance of past events in our preparation for our lives to come in Christ.

We invite patients and guests at our hospitals to join us at any of our Holy Week and Easter celebrations at the following locations:
