A special four-legged guest will take part in the Palm Sunday Family Eucharist on March 29, portraying the donkey that carried Jesus into Jerusalem as the children reenact the first Palm Sunday procession. All children are welcome, regardless of church membership.

Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday Choral Eucharist

On Palm Sunday, March 29 we celebrate the triumph of Jesus' entry into Jerusalem and end in quiet solemnity as we enter Holy Week. The Liturgy of the Palms takes place at 10:15 AM in the Cloister Garden, weather permitting, after which we process into the church for the 10:30 AM Choral Eucharist, a full service with choir.

Handel: "Learn to sing my Hallelujah Chorus!"

Open rehearsal for Easter’s “Hallelujah Chorus

St. George’s has a wonderful Easter tradition of inviting the congregation to come forward at the conclusion of the 10:30 AM service and join the choir in singing Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus. This year – our eighth – we’re adding something new by inviting the congregation to a special open rehearsal of the Hallelujah Chorus on Palm Sunday, March 29, following the 10:30 AM service.

Maundy Thursday Service

Maundy Thursday, April 2 will look different than in years past. We’ll begin in the Parish Hall for the traditional foot washing ceremony followed by a light Middle Eastern dinner. This “liturgy in motion” will take us from the Parish Hall, to the Cloister Walk, Children’s Chapel and finally to the Sanctuary for the Stripping of the Altar.
