Good Friday

Open Door's Holy Week Schedule

Holy Week is the last week of Lent marking Jesus' final journey toward the cross, death, burial and resurrection.

In addition to our regular Gathering on Sunday evening (where we'll celebrate resurrection!), we will also host the experiential Good Friday Passion Sojourn and an Easter Sunrise Hike.  Details below!


Good Friday Passion Sojourn (available 5-9PM with child care from 5-7PM)

Join us for a haunting moment of remembering the Passion of Jesus. This will be a contemplative, multi-sensory sojourn intended to be experienced in solitude. The sojourn will occur in the Parish Hall at St. Paul’s and will be open between 5-9pm. The entire experience should take 45-60 minutes depending upon your pace.

Easter Sunrise Hike

Join us at the Shell Ridge trail head at 6:00am for our annual Easter sunrise hike. Rain or shine, we will take the hike and remember the wonder of resurrection together. Our sunrise hike will include some light snacks, a 30 minute moderate hike, music, and a shared Resurrection liturgy as we watch the sun rise over Mt. Diablo.

Easter Resurrection Celebration

At 5PM we will Gather to celebrate resurrection together! (Our weekly Open Door Kids experience will be up and running.)
