Holy Week | Semana Santa

Join us for Holy Week at City of Light!

During Holy Week we journey with Jesus through the final days of his life, his death on the cross, and his resurrection from the grave. Each service has incredible moments where we can participate in the story. Join us for these in-person (RSVP) and online gatherings (LIVESTREAM) and check out the Holy Week At Home Guide below for everything you will need to follow along in your household throughout the week.
