Dear Saints in Seclusion,

We begin Holy Week today, April 5th, with PALM SUNDAY!


To begin, PUT A BRANCH ON THE DOOR OF YOUR HOUSE OR ON THE WINDOW—any green branch you can get or make. This will help us be connected as we enter into the Holiest of Weeks. (Get creative, kids!) If you’d like, TAKE A PICTURE OF YOU AND YOUR BRANCH and post it on our Facebook page so we can “wave our palms”! (see our Facebook right now for a picture of Rev. Jessie and Porkchop with their palms!)



(don't forget to leave a comment so we know you watched it!)

Other worship services:

*  Watch Bishop Gutierrez lead Palm Sunday service at 5:30am on CBS (Channel 3). It will be available on YouTube and the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania Facebook page.

*  Visit the National Cathedral’s website for their live streaming Liturgy of the Palms at 11:15am.



I continue to hold you in my prayers as we begin this Holy Week, and I look forward to how we will creatively be the church during this time.


See you on Zoom!


Rev. Jessie
