‘Via crucis’

Tonight at Westminster United Church, pianist and narrator Michael McKay will be giving a sacred piano recital called Via crucis (The Way of the Cross). The recital will be a unique experience, combining the piano solo version of Franz Liszt’s Via Crucis with readings from Anne Catherine Emmerich’s Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the candle-extinguishing ceremony of a Tenebrae service. The whole experience will be a powerful and dramatic meditation on the Stations of the Cross–on Christ’s sufferings, death, and burial. Admission: $20at the door.

This week we hold in our thoughts and prayers St. Charles United Church and Headingly United Church.


Children are invited to gather at the Children’s Table following the anthem for a quiet activity to help them engage in and experience the gospel message, while allowing them to move around and explore in ways that come naturally to them. Along with a craft activity they will find Children’s Bulletins in two different developmental levels containing activities relating to the day. This Sunday, at the Children’s Table, we will be colouring pictures of Jesus’ life and using them to make a cross as a reminder that we are to follow Jesus and serve others. For more information about the Children’s Table, contact Teri Skakum, Child and Family Coordinator, at teri@westminsterchurch.org.
