Holy Week

Maundy Thursday
April 2, 2015
Worship at 6:00 PM
St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church,
1805 W. Alabama, Houston, Texas  77098

This Thursday is called "Maundy," which means "command," from the verse in John's gospel in which Jesus commands us to love another as he loved us.

Good Friday – April 3, 2015
Worship at 7:00 PM

Good Friday focus is on the passion according to John, proclaiming Jesus as a triumphant king who reigns from the cross. The ancient title for this day—the triumph of the cross—reminds us that the church gathers not to mourn but to celebrate Christ's life-giving passion and to find strength and hope in the tree of life. 

Easter Vigil - Saturday, April 4
Worship at 7:00 PM

In the darkness of Jesus' death, Christians gather to keep vigil and await the dawn — to pray, sing, and remind one another of God's promises and salvation. The Vigil of Easter reflects many of life's dramatic journeys and the Old Testament stories appointed for the Vigil are powerful companions for the journey.

Easter - Sunday, April 5
Worship at 10:30 AM

The story of the risen Jesus continues in the mission of the church, Christ's body. The possibility of resurrection draws us into a community that lives out the middle of its story in the hope and witness of Christ's new life.
