Here is a map to St. Paul's
Maundy Thursday, 5 p.m. Foot washing is the equivalent of the Holy Eucharist in John's Gospel, and is uniquely practiced on Maundy Thursday. As Jesus washed the disciple's feet, clergy wash feet as a visual illustration of Jesus' request that we love and serve one another.
Good Friday, noon This traditional service from the Book of Common Prayer is enhanced at St. Paul's by the carrying of the cross, the touching cantor solo and veneration of the cross. Solemn Eucharist from reserve.
Easter Our usual service times. This Easter we will again have the flowering of the cross and special music. Flowers will be available at all services for all who wish to participate.
Easter Egg Hunt will be at 10:15 a.m. in the church yard. Fun for little kids and their parents.
Cesar Noble created this 12-minute video of the activities of God's Gardeners, a vitally important ministry of the church. Anyone can join the men and women who take care of the buildings and grounds by showing up at 7:30 (or so) on Thursday mornings. If you can't partake, give a nod of gratitude to your fellow parishioners who keep our campus looking spiffy.
