Holy Week with Buckingham


April 17th:             Love

Maundy Thursday, 6:00-8:00 “Maundy” comes from the Latin “mandatum” meaning command and is used to name this Thursday of Holy Week as we remember Jesus’ last night before his death and receive anew his command to love one another. What to expect: A simple meal of soup and bread, a hand/feet washing and communion for all in Fellowship Hall. Then we will move upstairs for a brief tenebrae service. Tenebrae, meaning “the lengthening of shadow,” is a quiet and reflective service as we hear scripture of the betrayal of Jesus by his followers and meditate on our own. We end the service in silence and darkness.  


April 18th:             Death  

Holy Friday, otherwise known as “Good” Friday. We will not have any services at Buckingham, though you are encouraged to participate in services at other area churches and to spend time in prayer with the scriptures. The gospel scripture for Good Friday is John 18:1 – 19:42


April 19th:             Grieving  
Holy Saturday, also known as the Easter Vigil. This is the time when Jesus is in the tomb. It is a period of grief after his death and for those who know the story it is time of waiting for the Good News to emerge anew. 


April 20th:             Resurrecting      
Easter Sunrise Service:  6:00AM (sunrise is due at 6:06!)
on the front lawn.  Join us for this informal and celebratory service of Jesus’ resurrection near to the break of day. Rev. Al Grimm and parishioners from the United Methodist Church in East Glastonbury are helping to lead this service. Warm up inside with donuts and other goodies after the service! 
Easter Service:  10:00am.  
We will enter into the sense of joy, awe, hope and more which resurrection inspires and seek to be transformed from death to life as we participate in Jesus’ transformation.
