Dear St. Aidan’s,

Holy Week is drawing near, so I want to be sure to share our schedule of services for this year. I hope you’ll plan to join us for as many of these services as you are able, as a way to commemorate the full experience of Christ’s final days in human form, his crucifixion, death, and glorious resurrection. The Triduum is what we traditionally call the services for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, the Great Vigil of Easter, and Easter Day. If you’ve never before experienced the Easter Vigil, I especially encourage you to consider worshipping with us on Sat., Mar. 30 at 7:30 p.m. Beginning at dusk, it’s the first of our Easter services to ring in our celebration of Christ’s resurrection. This service is one of the most ancient in our tradition, so come discover why this service remains so meaningful to Anglicans and other Christians around the world.
