HOLY WEEK SERVICES
Trinity Lutheran, Pembroke Pines, invites the entire community to its annual Holy Week services.
On April 21st, Maundy Thursday, Trinity will have services at noon and 7:30 PM. Each service will include Holy Communion and the ritual of foot/hand washing. The more traditional noon service will also include special prayers, Scripture readings, hymns and a concluding dramatic reading. The 7:30 PM service has at its heart a dramatic re-telling of the events of Holy Week and especially Maundy Thursday through reading, action and song led by Trinity’s older youth and will conclude with the stripping of the altar.
On April 22nd, Good Friday, Trinity will hold the traditional service of Tenebrae (readings and shadows) in which the Passion Gospel from Saint John will be read in eight parts with a candle extinguished after each reading. The service also includes traditional hymns and concludes with the entrance of the Cross and a time of prayer and adoration before it.
Also on Good Friday, from noon to 3PM, a self-paced and self-guided Stations of the Cross will be available at Trinity’s Outdoor Prayer Labyrinth, located in the rear field behind the church building. A greeter will be present during these three hours to offer the Station readings and prayers as a small booklet and answer any questions about the event.
