The sister Episcopal parishes of Northeast San Antonio, have discovered that walking the Journey of Holy Week, together, “side by side,” has somehow “freed the Spirit” among us. We have a new creative energy to collaborate and find, in the midst of our diversity, unity as the Body of Christ, not only through common worship, but in common mission. We welcome brothers and sisters from all backgrounds and traditions to join us, and further stretch and enrich our Holy Week Adventure. The Holy Week services have been shaped and handed down through the centuries and help us remember, contemplate, experience and celebrate the grace and mystery of the life, death and resurrection of Christ.
We hope you will join us for one or all of our Holy Week services in 2019. More details will be added as Holy Week grows closer.
