Parish Happenings – April 2014

Saint Alban’s Parish
911 S. Davis Drive
Arlington, Texas 76013
(817) 274-7826

Holy Week is the most sacred week of the Christian Year.  We commemorate the events of our Lord’s command to love one another; the institution of the Eucharist; and our Lord’s Passion and Death.  These lead us to the Feast of the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Easter Day.  The Lenten Season of sacrifice and self-denial are about to come to an end.  But the greatest focus for  this week is the Passion and Resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ and the events that led up to it.

Please make note of our services offered during Holy Week. Come participate in all of these wonderful services.
