The Sacrament of Reconciliation — Confession
One of the gifts of our spiritual tradition is the practice of sacramental confession (see James 5:12), where one makes a concerted effort to examine one’s life honestly and then names those sins in the presence of a priest for the purpose of receiving counsel and absolution (the authority given by Jesus to declare God’s absolute forgiveness; see John 20:23). Anglicans have always understood confession as a gift to be received. While no one can be forced to practice sacramental confession, there is tremendous freedom and healing that comes when we bring our sins into the Light (see 1 Peter 2:9) and name them in the presence of a Christian minister.
Practice Confession This Lent
Priests will be available this Lent to hear confessions by appointment ( View Clergy » ), as well as Monday through Wednesday in Holy Week, March 29-31, at 12 noon and 5 PM. At those times, please wait in the Main Church, socially-distanced, and you will be brought to Memorial Chapel individually for Confession.
What is the Triduum?
Paschal Triduum, Sacred Triduum, Easter Triduum, Holy Triduum, or the Three Holy Days are basically one continuous liturgy that begins with the institution of Holy Communion on Maundy Thursday and concludes with the most important liturgy of the year: the Great Vigil of Easter.
Maundy Thursday, April 1
Join us as the Sacred Triduum begins with the liturgy for Maundy Thursday, during which we remember the joy of the institution of the Eucharist, the love and service which Jesus lived and taught, the agony in the garden of Gethsemene, and the betrayal leading to the crucifixion. The bread and wine of the Last Supper are given new meaning by the Body broken and Blood poured out on the cross. The Sacrament is then taken to the Altar of Repose where the faithful are asked to "watch and pray." Finally, the altar, symbolic of Christ, is stripped of its vesture and the building is left bare for the solemnity of Good Friday.

Sign Up to Watch at the Altar of Repose
The Gospels of both Matthew and Mark recount how Jesus, after celebrating the Passover with his disciples and instituting the Eucharist, went to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray. He took Peter, James, and John with him and three times asked them, “Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation.” Each time when he returned, he found them sleeping.
“So, could you not watch with me one hour?”
The parish is invited to keep watch with the Blessed Sacrament at the altar of repose from the end of the Maundy Thursday service until the morning of Good Friday. All are invited to sign up for this unique opportunity to pray with Jesus and enter even more deeply into the mystery of Jesus’ love and passion. Sign up to participate in 1-hour increments. Complete the form with your name, and others (i.e. spouse or others in a group), your email, and the hour(s).

Good Friday, April 2
Join us for the Solemn Liturgy of Good Friday. On this day we remember the Lord of Life rejected, mocked, scourged, and put to death on the cross. As we read the Passion and pray the Solemn Collects, we remember that it is our own sins that caused Christ's suffering and agony, as he took all sin upon himself, in obedience to his Father's will. By the cross, we are redeemed, set free from bondage to sin and death. The cross is a sign of God's never-ending love for us, and it is a sign of life, in the midst of death.
