Today we turn the calendar and begin another liturgical year. What will this year of our Lord bring into our lives? How will the presence of Christ be made known in a world that longs to feel a loving touch, to hear a word of kindness, to experience forgiveness and grace? Christ has come in history as a babe in Bethlehem, comes to us in mystery as we hear the Word and share in Sacramental life, and Christ comes in glory as the church offers the welcome of Christ to those who are seeking a place to be and belong. Come just as you are and find what you seek at St. Christopher’s.

On this great feast of Pentecost – WE’RE BACK – INPERSON for worship. This is the first time we will celebrate Holy Communion together since March 8, 2020. We will gather outside for this 10:30 a.m. liturgy and we will continue to livestream the service for any who may not be able to attend in-person. We hope all parishioners and anyone looking for a place where you can worship God and know that you belong will come this and every Sunday, either in-person or online. We will still be wearing masks and distancing to protect children, youth, and others who are not vaccinated. We want to make sure that everyone can feel and be safe as we gather on this special feast. If you are able, wear red.

This is the night. . . we light a fire and set ablaze the Paschal Candle, light of Christ, thanks be to God. . . This is the night. . . we hear ancient stories of salvation, creation, passage through the sea and creation of God’s people, come to the waters, dry bones come back to life, God gathers the people, the lame, the oppressed, the outcast, and brings them home. . . This is the night. . . when we renew the promises of Baptism, with God’s help. . . This is the night. . . we are told the story of Christ rising triumphant from the grave! . . . in remembrance we do what Christ has done, take, bless, break, share, Christ made known in the breaking of the bread. . . This is the night . . . Alleluia! Christ is Risen! The Lord is Risen indeed! Alleluia!

The Triduum continues with the primary liturgy of Good Friday that takes place at 7:00 PM. In it we will hear the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ according to John, will pray for the world in the Solemn Collects, and will Venerate the Cross. “We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you, because by your holy cross, you have redeemed the world.”

We vigil of this Good Friday and walk with Jesus his Way of the Cross. Join Bud Hart in praying the Stations of the Cross.

Today is Passion (Palm) Sunday when we will proclaim the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark. This record of the passion of Jesus is the starkest account of the death of Jesus. In it we hear Jesus cry out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me.” What we have to remember is that Jesus would have also been intending to pray the rest of Psalm 22 which turns to praise and proclaims that in the midst of the assembly the suffering one will praise God so that generations yet to be born may know the saving power of God. We are those generations and we proclaim this word today for the many more who will follow after us. Listen well and give praise to the God of our salvation.
