Holy Week at St Mark’s

You are welcome to join us for some or all of our Holy Week services and events…

Travel in hope towards the cross
with Love as your companion:
follow the way to life’s limits;
embrace your fears;
welcome more enduring truths.

(Ian Wallis)

As we approach Holy Week and Easter we accompany Jesus of Nazareth on his journey towards the cross and beyond all that threatened to diminish him.  As we listen to the stories of our faith and share at his table we remember his ministry, passion and death.

Like Martha and Mary, Peter and John, we too follow Jesus.  We long to share his way of being human and to experience his enduring presence.  The disciples’ trust in Jesus enabled them to embrace his way of life and share the love they experienced with him: a love that found new depths as they suffered his death, mourned his passing and found new life in continuing the ministry he entrusted to them.

We pray that you will find the pilgrimage from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday a deepening and enlivening experience.  Together may we share a truly Holy Week.

Sue, Sarah, Shan and Anne
