Good Friday at St. Bart’s

Fri, April 19, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 6:30 pm

GOOD FRIDAY, APRIL 19
8 am  Good Friday Liturgy
 in the Chapel
A service of the Word, with a focus on the cross, including the Passion according to St. John and the solemn collects. And then the service concludes with Holy Communion from the reserved sacrament.

12 noon to 3 pm  The Three Hours:  Seven Last Words of Christ, in the Church
The Gospels record the “seven last words” of Jesus from the cross, and this traditional service is in seven sections. In each, we reflect upon the crucifixion with choral music by  St. Bartholomew’s Choir, hymns, prayers, a series of meditations, and periods of silence. Feel free to stay all three hours, or to come and go as your schedule allows. We end with the memorial tolling of the bell 33 times, one for each year of Jesus’ life.

3:15 pm  Confessions: The Rite of Reconciliation in the Chapel
Members of the clergy will be available for The Reconciliation of a Penitent (The Book of Common Prayer, pp. 447–51), also known as the Rite of Private Confession. Take this opportunity to reflect on your journey and come away with nourishment for your prayer life.

 4 pm: Family Stations of the Cross
Our Interactive Stations of the Cross for children ages 5 to 17 is a great way to help our young people connect with the journey of Holy Week through themes of betrayal, comforting our friends, caring and forgiveness.  For many people, especially our children and adolescents, Holy Week can feel disconnected from their lives.  This service will engage families in conversation and help them connect greater meaning to this holiest of weeks.

 5:30 pm  Evening Prayer in the Chapel

6 pm  Good Friday Liturgy in the Chapel
A service of the Word, with a focus on the cross, including the Passion according to St. John and the solemn collects. And then the service concludes with Holy Communion from the reserved sacrament.
