St. Michael’s Newsbits

Consider challenging yourself this year by adding another special service to your worship plan for 2019.

Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and The Great Vigil on Saturday  form the ancient backbone of worship in the Christian church.

The Episcopal Church and other liturgically-based churches observe these services.

These three services, sometimes called the Three Holy Days (the Triduum) are designed to give you a deeper            understanding of your faith.
