Holy Week Readings

The week before Easter is considered Holy Week in the Moravian Church. One of the distinctive features of Moravian worship during Holy Week is the use of Reading for Holy Week, a harmony of the gospel accounts of Christ’s last week before his death and resurrection. We gather each evening for these readings during Holy Week. Holy Communion is celebrated on Maundy Thursday. At this service we remember Christ’s Last Supper with his disciples, and give special thanks for his allowing us to participate in it through communion.
