You are warmly invited to celebrate Holy Week with St. Thomas Episcopal Church. We will live-stream our Palm Sunday liturgy, Good Friday service and Easter worship on Facebook Live. Each service will also be video-archived and posted on YouTube so you can choose to participate live or at your convenience. After each service is uploaded, a reminder link will be emailed out to the parish.
In addition to our live-streamed services, a Holy Week Contemplative Worship will be recorded and released on Wednesday afternoon. On Maundy Thursday, you are invited to participate in an interactive liturgy at home. A copy of this simple service, designed to take place during an evening meal, will be sent to the parish on Tuesday.

Good Friday Offering
Over the last several years, through our Good Friday Offering and sales of Palestinian olive oil, St. Thomas has made a commitment to walk with our companions in the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem – the Arab Episcopal School for the Blind in Irbid, Jordan (AES) and the afterschool daycare program of the Evangelical Home for Children, in Ramallah.
From its beginning in 2003 as a kindergarten for visually impaired children, AES has grown to a K-10 school with more than 250 students, both sighted and impaired, learning side-by-side in an integrated setting. AES also provides employment for both men and women, some of whom are themselves blind or visually impaired. All educational and health ministries of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem serve all comers and help promote peaceful relationships between Christians and Muslims. In addition, St. Thomas has provided support to Gaza’s Ahli Arab Hospital in times of urgent need.
During this Holy Week, please give from the heart and support our companions in Christ. Make a check out to “American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem” and be sure to earmark it to ETVTC and AES. Our support is needed and greatly appreciated.
