Welcome to Reformation!
Holy Week Schedule
Gustavus College Orchestra Concert, April 1, 7:00 PM. A special gift to Reformation and the Capitol Hill Community, one of the premier Lutheran college orchestras from Minnesota will present a free concert! Invite your friends.
Maundy Thursday, April 2, 7:00-8:00 PM. Join children and adults of all ages for a special worship service focused on three great actions of Jesus’ love. First we kneel to individually hear the announcement of the forgiveness of our sin. Second, following Jesus’ command to love one another, those who desire can participate in the ancient ritual of footwashing. Finally, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper and “proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.”
Good Friday, April 3, noon and 7:00 PM. We proclaim the story of Jesus' passion according to John. Reformation's cantor and choir will offer special music. The service concludes with ancient bidding prayers and a meditation upon the cross. On the cross Christ is king drawing the whole cosmos to God’s embrace.
Capitol Hill Easter Vigil, Saturday, April 4, 8:00-10:00 PM at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 301 A Street, SE. Worship begins with the lighting of the New Fire and the lighting of the new Pascal Candle. Then we proclaim and respond to the stories of God's salvation in the Hebrew Scriptures. The service culminates as we celebrate Jesus' resurrection and his offering of life for us in Baptism and Holy Communion. Leaders include pastors, musicians and artists from Reformation, First Trinity Lutheran, Capitol Hill Presbyterian, St. Mark's Episcopal and Christ Church at Capitol Hill.
