(Modified 2021-04-02: Added recordings of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday service.)

“Spy Wednesday” is one of the traditional titles given to this day at the centre of Holy Week. This was the day Judas met with members of the Sanhedrin in order to betray Jesus to them in exchange for 30 pieces of silver. As the Gospel tells us, “From then on he began looking for a good opportunity to betray Jesus.” (Matthew 24.16)

For a second year in a row, circumstances have conspired to prevent and constrict us from gathering together as a parish family to celebrate the mystery of Jesus’ suffering, death, and resurrection. Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday are properly understood as one church service that stretches over three days, and stands at the heart of our Christian faith and life as a parish community. In an effort to connect us, we will be broadcasting live audio of the upcoming services from St. Mary’s:

Maundy Thursday 5.30 p.m.
Holy Communion with Hymns and Sermon
(Sorry the live stream didn’t work, but here’s the recording, and the text of Beth’s sermon.)
