For many clergy and church leaders, the most significant holy days of the year can be consumed by the tasks of ministry instead of being able to authentically worship.
This Holy Week, the Northern Illinois Conference is partnering with Dr. Marcia McFee to provide an opportunity for clergy, their families and church leaders to come and participate in a profoundly moving worship experience. No reading or other preparation is required. You are simply invited to come and have your soul fed.
Dr. McFee will lead a worship experience through the lens of Egeria, a 4th-century pilgrim who left a journal describing Holy week events in Jerusalem. Together, we will engage in our own pilgrimage through Holy Week, from Palm Sunday through Holy Saturday, experiencing prayer, soulful singing, candlelight, and space for personal reflection.
“Dr. Marcia McFee is unparalleled in creative, transformative worship design, and it is our hope that the extraordinary clergy of this conference will be blessed by this Holy Week offering, not as another meeting or event to attend, but rather an opportunity to join with sisters and brothers journeying to the cross,” says Bishop Sally Dyck.
This event is entirely free, meant to be a gift for those who are so generously giving of themselves through their calls to ministry. We do, however, request registration in order to facilitate adequate setup and materials. Childcare and parking are available.
