Easter Week Schedule (Rector’s Letter for 3/08)

Dear Redeemer Family,
This is the third week of the season of Lent, and Easter Sunday is just 27 days away. I am grateful that we will be able to do what we could not do last year, and meet together for our Holy Week services. 
Thursday April 1 we will have a Maundy Thursday service at 7PM. Good Friday we will have a traditional service at Noon, and a Tenebrae service at 7PM. Holy Saturday’s service will be live-stream only at 8:30AM (but posted on our Facebook page so you can view at any time on Saturday). Easter Sunday we will have three services: 6:30AM outdoor Sunrise Service in-person and live-stream, 8:00AM in-person only, and then 10:00AM in-person and live-stream.
We will also be celebrating Baptisms on Easter Sunday. If you have not been previously baptized and you would like to be baptized, or if you have a child who you would like to receive the sacrament of Baptism, please email Shirley (shirley.redeemerjax@gmail.com) and let her know.
I am continuing to reflect on my sermon yesterday, as it continues to challenge me. If you missed it, I encourage you to either view it or listen to it.
Peace to you, as you continue your Lenten journey to Easter. I close with the Collect for the third Sunday of Lent:
Heavenly Father, you have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you: Look with compassion upon the heartfelt desires of your servants, and purify our disordered affections, that we may behold your eternal glory in the face of Christ Jesus; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. (BCP p.606)
Fr. Bill
