Holy Week Services on Campus
We invite you to gather with other members of the
Allegheny Community as we observe the
Christian Holy Week and Jewish Passover.
Tuesday, March 26: Tenebrae Service
8:30 pm, Ford Chapel
Join Allegheny Christian Outreach and Newman as they observe the “Service of Shadows.”
Wednesday, March 27: Sojourners Fellowship
5:00 pm, McKinley’s Private Dining Room
Sojourners Christian Fellowship hosts a discussion of Jesus’ last supper and its relationship to Passover, along with a service of Communion. This will be offered on Wednesday rather than on Maundy Thursday, so that Christians can attend the Jewish Seder on Thursday.
Thursday, March 28: Passover Seder
5:00 pm, Schultz Banquet Hall
All are invited to join Hillel in this ritual meal of the Jewish Passover, the same meal that Jesus shared with his disciples the week of his death in Jerusalem. There is no charge, but you must make a reservation by contacting Spiritual and Religious Life by March 25. <rellife> or 814-332-2800
