Good Friday Offerings

March 8, 2018

This year, Trinity is invited to experience Good Friday in both traditional and non-traditional ways. A traditional Good Friday service taken from the Book of Common Prayer will be celebrated at on March 30, 9 am, with communion from reserved sacrament. 


During the three-hour Meditation on the Passion from 12-3 pm, Kirsten Cairns, Trinity parishioner and professional stage director, is teaming up with clergy, music, and volunteers to create a unique devotional experience. Drawing from traditions of sacred theater and passion plays, the meditation will incorporate scripture, psalmody, music, reflections from the clergy, and movement. Being present for the entire three hours preserves the unity and movement of the experience, but you may attend in whatever way is possible. 


The day will draw to a close with the La Farge Ensemble's performance of Pärt's Passio. One of the most widely performed living composers in the world, Estonian composer Arvo Pärt draws on the rich history of early music for a hauntingly minimalist style. This distinctive "tintinnabuli" style reaches a culmination in his setting of St. John's Passion, scored for soloists, choir, violin, cello, oboe, bassoon, and organ.


As we participate in the broader church’s constant re-envisioning of what faith is in a rapidly changing world, we lean both on the rites we inherit and on seeking new ways into the heart of what it means to follow Christ. We hope you will join us.
