Journey With Us Through Holy Week

  • Lutheran Church of the Resurrection 9100 Mission Rd. Prairie Village, KS 66206 (map)


PALM SUNDAY 8:00 AM Service of Holy Communion. (We will not have a processional but palm branches will be available.)

PALM SUNDAY 10:30 AM  The children will hear the story of Palm Sunday and lead us in a Procession with Palms before joining Haley in the Nursery for Sunday School. The service moves from celebration to the story of Jesus' arrest and crucifixion followed by Holy Communion. 


Maundy means "commandment" and on this night Jesus commands us to "wash one another's feet" -- to serve one another as he has served us and he invites us to the table of bread and wine to receive a new covenant of love. At the end of the service we strip the altar and worship space of all adornment and exit in silence.

Puccini Requiem performed by Kathryn HIlger, viola soloist.


We enter and exit in contemplative silence to accompany Jesus from the Garden of Gesthemane to the Cross.  Tennebrae is Latin for "shadows" or "darkness."  The service begins in light with many candles and gradually fades to darkness as we hear again the story of Jesus' arrest, crucifixion and burial.
