Holy Week is fast upon us, an emotional roller coaster, if ever there were one.  Our shouts of “Hosanna to the Son of David” on Palm Sunday turn to “Crucify him!” on Good Friday, and then into “Christ is risen indeed!” on Easter—all in the course of one week.  Your acolytes, servers, sacristans, ushers, clergy, musicians, Coffee Hour hosts, and many others are already hard at work in preparation to celebrate the solemnities and holy mysteries of this most sacred time.  The Holy Week Schedule is immediately below this, and I trust you are making plans to be at St. Paul’s for all of it. As usual, the people and clergy of Christ Church Cobble Hill will be joining us for Good Friday and the Easter Vigil.  Of course, this is the most solemn and sacred time liturgically and spiritually for Christians, but it is also the time of year when St. Paul’s welcomes the most visitor. And the best way to get visitors to return is for them to experience a meaningful and moving service in a church full of people (and a smile and word of welcome doesn’t hurt either!).

St. Paul’s is honored that Bishop Gerayln Wolf will be joining us on Easter Day.  This is not our official Episcopal Visitation, so Bishop Wolf will not meet with the vestry; however, she will celebrate mass and join us for Coffee Hour.  We very exciting and honored to have her celebrate the Glory of the Resurrection with us.

See you Sunday.

Yours sincerely in Christ,
Fr. Wallace
