[Palm Sunday]
Passion Sunday – March 25
Palm Procession with Holy Communion: 9:00 am

Zion's Holy Week observance begins with a Palm Procession as we gather in the Upper Parish Hall, parade into God's House (as Jesus and his followers paraded into Jerusalem), hear the Passion according to St. Matthew, and celebrate Holy Communion.

See and read about Zion's Palm/Passion Sunday 2009 celebration in this front-page article from the Peoria Journal Star.



Wednesday of Holy Week – March 28
Healing Service: 11:00 am

As many of us were marked with a Cross of the ashes of repentance at the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday, we conclude the 40 days of Lent by being marked again with a Cross -- this time of oil for healing.

Good Friday Liturgy: Noon at Zion

We gather at the foot of the Cross to witness Christ's glory while hearing the Passion according to St. John.
