Compline

Compline – night prayer – is the final worship of the day in the monastic system of canonical hours. This contemplative office focuses on spiritual peace. During the 35 minutes of sung Compline, no words are spoken; worshipers bathe in beautiful, timeless music, sung by Trinity’s Schola Cantorum. With lights dimmed and candles flickering, the calming ancient chants offer time and space for personal meditation and reflection. You will be invited to light a candle, offer prayers, and be still in God’s presence. Arrive at 6:45 for a brief introduction to Compline and a time of silent prayer.

Good Friday

12:10 p.m., Stations of the Cross (Cathedral)

Gather by candlelight in the cathedral at noon on Good Friday as a solemn procession recalls Jesus’ journey to Calvary. Each stop along the Way of the Cross—a “station”—is marked with a scripture reading, a prayer, and a meditative sung response. The liturgy mystically transports us to the ancient city of Jerusalem, preparing our hearts and minds for Easter. The cathedral will be open for silent prayer for a period of time following the Stations of the Cross liturgy.

 

5:30 p.m. Children's Good Friday Service

Join us for a special Good Friday service appropriate for children and all ages!

 

7:00 p.m., Good Friday Liturgy with Cathedral Choir

The Friday before Easter Day, on which the church commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus. It is a day of fasting and special acts of discipline and self-denial. The liturgy of the day includes John's account of the Passion gospel, a solemn form of intercession known as the solemn collects (dating from ancient Rome), and devotions before the cross (commonly known as the veneration of the cross).

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday

Maundy Thursday recalls the events of Jesus’ betrayal and arrest and the night before he died. At the end of the Maundy Thursday service liturgy, the consecrated elements of bread and wine are placed on the altar in the Nativity Chapel as a way of symbolizing Jesus’ prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane before his arrest. An ancient tradition of the church is to keep a prayer vigil with the sacrament as a way of watching and praying with Jesus as he faces the final hours of his life.

It is an ancient practice to “sit and wait with Jesus” during the night and early morning hours on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. This year, we will again be keeping vigil with Jesus beginning immediately after the Maundy Thursday service concludes (about 8:00pm) until 12:00 midnight. This year, we are also adding early morning ours to “wait with Jesus” from 6:00am until Morning Prayer begins at 8:30am. All of this will take place in the Nativity Chapel. You are invited to sign up for half hour shifts on Thursday night and Friday morning (or both!). We would like to have at least one person praying in the chapel each of these half hours. To sign up, please contact Br. James at jdowd@episcopal-ne.org.
