Kris Christians shares her personal Palm Sunday procession in today’s newsletter. It’s really moving.

You’ll also find the schedule for Holy Week. The Zoom link for the service on Maundy Thursday was sent Saturday to all who receive worship video links and updates from Ingrid. She will send the information again prior to Thursday’s service. If you do not receive emails with worship video links from Ingrid, and you would like to, contact me and I’ll add you to that list.

The worship staff has worked hard to create worship videos for Holy Week. I hope you all get a chance to worship with Holy Trinity throughout this most holy of weeks.
