Holy Week 2015
As in past years, Emmanuel Episcopal Church celebrated Palm Sunday by joining with other downtown Staunton churches in a procession that began at Trinity Episcopal Church and ended at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. It was a bright and sunny morning, though a bit on the chilly side. After the procession was over, our Holy Eucharist service began.
For the rest of Holy Week, there will be services on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday (Easter Vigil), culmininating with Easter Day. All are welcome to join us in these services of worship and devotion. See the Calendar page for details about time, etc.
Work / cleanup day at church
In preparation for Holy Week, Emmanuel had a work / cleanup day on Saturday March 28. Organized by George Sproul, members divided up into teams to tackle various jobs in the hallways, the kitchen, and the outside lawn. There will be some follow-up work on the lawn on Saturday, just before Easter.
Church youth visit Boys Home
On March 14-15, the PAX Youth Group from Emmanuel Episcopal Church, along with their counterparts from Trinity Episcopal in Staunton, and St. John's Episcopal in Waynesboro, paid a mission visit to Boys Home in Covington, Virginia. It was dubbed a "Lock-in" event, with a variety of service projects, worship, and singing, as well as time for fun. The youth spent several hours working alongside Boys Home residents on service projects including painting a cottage basement, constructing raised beds for the garden, and building a greenhouse. Amanda Glover led the Emmanuel PAX youth contingent. Boys Home was founded in 1906, and "provides care for young men in a healthy, supportive environment." It includes a school, a vocational/technical center, a chapel, as well as recreational facilities. For more information, see boyshomeofva.org.
