On behalf of the leaders and staff of our Trinity Episcopal Church, I wish you the many blessings of Holy Week.
We need to be together to pray about Christ’s passion, and crucifixions in our day. We need to be together to ponder suffering and redemption.
I invite you to be present for our observance of the ‘Triduum,’ the most holy time in the
Christian liturgical year. Maundy Thursday begins ‘The Paschal Triduum’ – meaning, ‘the three days.’
Since the days of ancient Christianity, the three services of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil are one continuous liturgical event. This liturgy represents the heart of the Christian faith, the message of salvation, and the healing power of redemption.
The Triduum commemorates the Paschal mystery - the Institution of the Eucharist at the Last Supper, Christ’s Passion, his Crucifixion, his descent to the dead, and his glorious resurrection at the Great Vigil of Easter. During these three days, we pass over with Christ from death to life.
We will remember each event in the drama of salvation and enter together into the mystery of dying and rising again with Jesus Christ. May the peace of Christ be with you all.
May God's peace be with you,
Rev. Andrea Castner Wyatt
