LAST SUPPER DRAMA
Monday, April 14,
here at the Hollidaysburg Church of the Brethren
The event features an adult cast from St. Michael, St. Mary and St. Patrick Catholic Parishes of Hollidaysburg and Newry.
Watch and listen as Christ’s disciples express their thoughts and emotions, preparing to share in the First Eucharist and our Lord’s Redeeming Passion. You will find them arranged as in Leonardi DaVinci's portrayal of The Last Supper.
Music accompanies the one hour drama, beginning after sundown, in total darkness, and requires no audience participation. There is no cost or offering.
THIS IS NOT TO BE MISSED!!!!
Maundy Thursday Love Feast
Thursday, April 17
We gather to celebrate Love Feast, the most precious of Brethren traditions, remembering that Jesus shared his Last Supper long ago on that Thursday before his arrest crucifixion.
After self-examination and feetwashing, we will join in our traditional agape meal of beef and broth. We are adding grapes, cheese and crackers to our evening, as well as a vegetable broth option.
This year we will also incorporate the "shadows" - the extinguishing of Tenebrae candle lights - into our worship.
Traditionally, this service is for baptized Christians. We invite all those who love the Lord Jesus Christ to participate. May this service be a highlight for you during Holy Week.
