HERMISTON — St. John’s Episcopal Church invites people to join them for Holy Week services at 665 E. Gladys Ave., Hermiston.

The Palm Sunday (April 14, 9 a.m.) service features Eucharist and blessing of the palms. Rev. Chuck Barnes said it’s a choral service and includes chanting of the “Passion Gospel.”

Maundy Thursday (April 18, 7 p.m.) includes reading the service of Tennebrae, which means “Journey into Darkness.”

Good Friday (April 19), the church will be open from noon to 6:30 p.m. for a time of quiet prayer and reflection with Stations of the Cross. And, the Good Friday Eucharist follows at 7 p.m.

The Easter morning Eucharist (April 21, 9 a.m.) includes the children’s flowering of the cross. In addition, a traditional Easter egg hunt for children will follow the service.
