Remembering Mary Magdalene in Holy Week
Sunday, March 20, 9:30 a.m., Brooks Room,
and Monday, March 21, 6:30 p.m., Nave
Presenters: Lisa Persons and Beverley Elliott

How might including a liturgy in Holy Week that remembers Mary Magdalene’s loving anointing of Jesus’ feet shift your experience of this annual unfolding of Holy events? On Monday of Holy Week we will hold a contemplative liturgy that invites us to remember Mary Magdalene’s loving accompaniment of Jesus during the Holy Week drama. This shifts the emphasis of the week from the abandonment of Jesus by his friends, to his sacrificial, transfiguring love. To prepare for the contemplative anointing liturgy, we will meet for Sunday school on Sunday, March 20th in the Brooks Room. We will reflect together on the role of Mary Magdalene, discuss elements of the liturgy, practice the chants and prepare together for this special service. The liturgy is based on one written by the Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault. To read about the roots of the liturgy see this article:

Lisa Persons has and M. Div. from Candler School of Theology and is a coordinator for Amerson House Spirituality Center. She has studied with Cynthia Bourgeault over a number of years. The Rev. Beverley Elliott is Senior Associate Rector for Adult Formation and Pastoral Care at St. Bartholomew’s.
