Good Friday: St. John the Passion
April 19 @ 7:30 am - 9:15 pm
At the heart of the Good Friday liturgy is the passion according to John. Johann Sebastian Bach’s 1725 musical setting of the St. John Passion is performed by Cantorei with soloists and members of the St. Olaf Orchestra; conducted by James E. Bobb, Cantor to the Student Congregation. The ancient title for this day-the triumph of the cross-reminds us that the church gathers not to mourn this day but to celebrate Christ’s life giving passion and to find strength and hope in the tree of life. This service is part of a three day observance that culminates in the Easter Vigil tomorrow evening.
The sermon this evening will be delivered by Associate College Pastor Katherine Fick and will be assisted by College Pastor Matthew Marohl.
