Holy Week in the Cascades


We are exceedingly grateful that many of you sent us the splendid selection of Holy Week events which we reported in our special April 17 issue. We also know that there will be a rich and inspiring array of Easter services transpiring this weekend. Unfortunately, we cannot not make an exhaustive list of them all.  If there is something you feel should be highlighted, please send your information to Steve Parker and he will try to post it on Facebook during the next couple of days.

Below are a few more highlighted events throughout the presbytery.  If you would like to visit one of our congregations this Holy Week season, please visit the congregation directory and explore their web site for more information.
