Holy Week and Easter 2020

Sunday, April 5, is the beginning of Holy Week, the sacred week when we walk the Way of Jesus, from his triumphal entry into Jerusalem, to his last evening with his friends, to his arrest and crucifixion, death and burial. So much, so rich, so much to share.
While we will not be physically together this year, we will be together, via Zoom, a technology for our time.
Below is the calendar for the events of Holy Week at the Advocate 2020, Together, though Apart. 

The Zoom link for all events can requested at TheAdvocateChurch@gmail.com.

For some events, there are recommendations of items to have on hand as they begin. 

We look forward to sharing this Holy Week with you.
