A Holy Week Contemplative Anointing Service

  • Christ Church Cathedral 900 Broadway Nashville, TN 37203 (map)

Based on a service written by Cynthia Bourgeault, this contemplative prayer service remembering Mary Magdalene’s steadfast presence throughout Jesus’ passion, crucifixion, and resurrection, which began with an act of anointing as she sent Jesus forth, sealed in love, to his death.
Utilizing a meditative rhythm of readings, chanting, and silence, this prayer service culminates in an anointing of one another, as we remember not only Mary Magdalene’s gesture of profound love for Jesus, but her intention to anoint him a second time on Easter morning when she witnessed Christ resurrected.
All are welcome. We will gather in the Chancel.
