WMH Parkinson's support group

Westfield Memorial Hospital's Parkinson's Disease Support Group Meeting is held the first Thursday of every month from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Maundy Thursday

A celebration of the night when Jesus gave the Holy Communion and a New Commandment (Maundatum) to love one another at St. Peter's Episcopal Church, 12 Elm Street in Westfield, at 7 p.m. Participate in these two events with Hand Washing, instead of the traditional foot washing, and receiving Holy Communion. At the conclusion of the service the consecrated bread and wine are processed to the columbarium "garden" and the altar is stripped of all adornment in a frenzy which mimics the apostles fleeing at Jesus' arrest. At this service the series on the Seven Deadly Sins will conclude with the sin of gluttony.

Good Friday

St. Peter's Episcopal Church is holding Community Stations of the Cross beginning at the Moore Park Gazebo at noon. For those who do not wish to walk, the stations will continue inside St. Peter's. A service with Solemn Prayers, Lamentations, Veneration of the Cross and Holy Communion will begin at 7 p.m. Mary's Solemn Hour will begin at 8 p.m., following an ancient Jewish custom of sitting with the bereaved after a family member has died. Join Mary as she remembers her life with Jesus and prays following his crucifixion. In keeping with the custom, bring a decorated egg or a flower to this service.
