Holy Week in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd

from Fr. Kevin:

We will be trying a few changes for Holy Week this year. 

On Holy Tuesday, we will transfer the foot washing gospel and ceremony to the Community Eucharist at 5:30 PM, so that the entire GTS community, including our children, can experience that wonderful ceremony (note: if  you have shoes that slip on, they are a good idea). 

On Maundy Thursday at 9:50 AM, we will place our focus on the Last Supper, along with the stripping of the altar and the procession of the reserve sacrament to the altar of repose. 

Finally, at 9:50 AM on Good Friday, we will celebrate The Way of the Cross from the Book of Occasional Services, along with the Mass of the Pre-Sanctified (communion from the reserve sacrament) and the closing of the chapel doors. 

Many of us will undoubtedly be busy in our parishes this week, but let us also take the time to worship and remember the great themes of this week as a worshipping community here at GTS.
