Holy Week is the most important week of the Church calendar. Join us as we gather in worship. Services are livestreamed through our YouTube channel (Christ Church Anglican, Savannah).
April 2 – Sunday
Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week. The procession with palms calls to mind the triumphal entry of Jesus, our Lord and King, into Jerusalem. We also hear a reading of the passion, which is a dramatic shift, ushering in the somber reality of Christ’s death on the cross.

- Palm branches will be provided or you may bring your own to wave.
- Holy Eucharist, 8 AM, Nave

- Liturgy of the Palms with Holy Eucharist, 10:30 AM, Procession begins in Thomas Square Park

April 6 – Thursday
Maundy Thursday begins the Triduum, the sacred three days. The liturgy celebrates the Last Supper and commemorates the Lord’s example of servant ministry. It concludes with the Stripping of the Altar signifying Christ being taken away to the cross.
Service Time 6:30 PM, Nave, Nursery is available
April 7 – Friday
The second day of the Triduum is the most somber of all days. Good Friday reminds us of the agony and suffering of Jesus and the brutality of his death on the cross for our sins. Christ took all sin upon himself, in obedience to his Father’s will.
- Noon, Nave
- 6:30 PM, Nave
April 8 – Saturday
The Great Vigil, celebrated on Holy Saturday, is the first liturgy of Easter Day and moves from the darkness of Jesus’ death to the light of his resurrection. We share the joy of our Savior’s triumph with the sacrament of baptism or renewal of our baptismal vows, lighting of the Paschal candle and peals of bell ringing!
- Bring a bell to ring.
Service Time: 8 PM. Please meet in the front of the church on Bull Street.
