Dear brothers and sisters of St. Christopher’s,
May the peace of Christ be with you!
Palm Sunday – This Sunday is Palm Sunday. Due to rain and cold weather, the English congregation will gather in the Sunday School classrooms foyer for the liturgy of the Palm. The procession will enter with palms in hand, in remembrance of Jesus Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem.
Washing of Feet – At the Last Supper, Jesus set an example for us by washing the disciples’ feet and taught us to be servants. On April 18, Maundy Thursday, 7:30 pm at NYC, we will have Washing of Feet ceremony. If you like the priest to wash your feet, please sign on the board. (On that night, there will also be Striping of the Altar, signifying our Lord’s humiliation and suffering.) Mrs. Tracy Wong will be the preacher.
Good Friday – Fri. April 19, we will have meditative service at 9 a.m. at NYC and 11 a.m. at RHC (English & Chinese).
a. Order Easter Lilies – Please order Easter lilies from Stephen Ho before April 14, $10/pot. You can take your order home after the Easter Sunday service.
b. Joint service on Easter Sunday, April 21, at 11 am at RHC. English and NYC services will be cancelled.
c. Easter lunch – We will have lunch after service, $15/adult and $12/child (8-10 years of age). Please contact Stephen Ho for tickets.
Let us prepare our hearts for the Passion of Jesus!
Yours truly in Christ,
Philip Der+ (The Rev. Canon)
