Chapel by the Sea announces services during Lent

By Staff | Feb 27, 2019

The season of Lent – 40 days not including Sundays – begins on Ash Wednesday, March 6.

The Captiva Chapel by the Sea will host a service at noon that day, which will include Holy Communion and the imposition of ashes. Each Wednesday during the Lenten season, there will be a brief service of Holy Communion at noon.

Palm Sunday commemorates the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem, where he dies on Good Friday. Maundy or Holy Thursday, April 18, remembers Jesus’ last supper with his disciples in the upper room. There will be a service of Holy Communion and Tenebrae at 7 p.m. Tenebrae is an ancient service of readings and extinguishing of candles, which recalls the last events in Jesus’ life.

Good Friday, the day on which Jesus died, will be commemorated with a service at noon. Easter Day, April 21, the church will gather to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus from the grave on the first Easter. There will be glorious Easter music and the old, but ever new, story of Jesus’ resurrection will be read.

The Captiva Chapel by the Sea is at 11580 Chapin Lane.
