The Way of the Cross

On your own at any time in Lent or Holy Week

We will not be offering a separate Way of the Cross service this year. However, those who wish to walk the Way of the Cross are invited to view and reflect on this video by Saint Mark’s Cathedral; follow along using the order of service. Through scripture, art, and music, the video invites us to walk with Christians of every generation on a virtual pilgrimage, meditating on Christ’s passion and death.

Livestream: The Great Vigil of Easter

Apr. 3, 8:15 PM

This is the most solemn night of the Christian year, and we invite you to join a Saint Michael’s watch party on Zoom. Together, we will participate virtually at Saint Mark’s Cathedral and experience the service which includes lighting of the New Fire and the Paschal Candle, chanting of the Exultet, and Holy Scripture. The Proclamation of the Resurrection heralds the opening of the doors; the first Eucharist of Easter follows.
