Palm Sunday is the last Sunday in Lent, also known as the Sunday of the Passion, and the beginning of Holy Week. The day commemorates Jesus' triumphal procession into Jerusalem and is marked by a blessing of palms and a procession of the whole congregation around the church, followed by a reading of the passion gospel and a Eucharist that is penitential in tone.

Joint Tenebre Service at Anglican Church of the Resurrection (AMiA) on March 19th at 7:00 pm

Come join us for this impassioned service at REZ. Tenebre (TEN.eh.bray) is a Latin word meaning "darkness" or "shadows" and is used for an evening service the Wednesday of Holy Week. The service involves the lighting of fifteen candles and the gradual darkening of the church by progressive extinguishing of fourteen candles while psalms and other biblical passages are read. When only the fifteenth candle is still burning it is hidden, leaving the church in total darkness. Then a loud noise is made to symbolize the earthquake at the time of Jesus´ crucifixion in Matthew´s gospel account and the last candle is brought back; the congregation departs by its light. For more info, contact the main office at 303.795.9800 or info@actschurchcolorado.org.

Joint Maundy Thursday Service at The Light of Christ Anglican Church (AMiA) on March 20th at 7:00 pm

Come join us for this humbling service at TLC. Maundy Thursday is the Thursday of Holy Week, on which the church remembers Jesus´ institution of the Eucharist and the washing of the disciples´ feet. "Maundy" is a medieval English form of the Latin word mandatum, meaning "commandment," and it refers to Jesus´ "new commandment" in John's gospel, "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." (John 13:34 NIV)

In ancient times the task of washing feet was usually assigned to servants. However, because Jesus washed his disciples´ feet at the Last Supper, the early Christian church continued that custom, and it later became associated with the Maundy Thursday Liturgy.

ACTS Good Friday Service March 21st at 7:00 with The Light of Christ Anglican (AMiA)
