                                                                         HOLY  WEEK

As we enter Holy Week, we contemplate once again the events that lie at the core of our faith:

We meet the servant Jesus who washes the disciples’ feet.

We meet the generous Jesus who shares His very life with us.

We meet the forgiving Jesus on the cross.

We meet the Risen Jesus who intercedes for us with the Father

Come and pray with us this week.



Lord Jesus, I give you my hands to do your work. I give you my feet to go your way. I give you my eyes to see as you do. I give you my tongue to speak your words.

I give you my mind that you may think in me. I give you my spirit that you may pray in me. I give you my heart that you may love in me, your Father and all people.

I give you my whole self that you may grow in me, so that it is you, Lord Jesus, who live and work and pray in me. Amen.
