We are excited to share our plans for Holy Week, 2021!


  • Send palm photos (by this Thursday) and 

          alleluia videos (by next Thursday) to music@upcbr.org.

  • Holy Week services every day for 20 minutes at 7:30pm on Zoom: 

We will start the week off with a Palm Sunday worship service that will take us on a virtual tour of Baton Rouge and join the parade of people welcoming Jesus to the capital city. You are invited to take a photo of yourself or your family waving palms (which you can pick up at the church starting today) or any other greenery – paper palms included – and send it in to music@upcbr.org by Thursday of this week. A palm illustration is included as an attachment to this email.

Holy Monday – Maundy Thursday: We will join one another on Zoom each day at sunset (approximately 7:30 pm) for 20 minutes, to accompany Jesus on his journey to the cross. This will include communion on Maundy Thursday. The zoom link for these services is below, or you can use the Meeting ID (861 7797 2253) and Passcode (310400) https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86177972253?pwd=enNmZnFqanpHMm8vVkl0U1dtajZnZz09.

Good Friday: Patterned on our traditional Tenebrae service, this service will not be on Zoom but will be streamed on our Facebook page at 7:30pm.

Holy Saturday: The Easter Flower Cross will be set up in front of the church courtyard and everyone in the congregation is invited to begin flowering the cross as one would take flowers to a gravesite.

Easter Sunday: Weather-permitting, Patti & Mamie will lead our virtual service (including communion) from the courtyard with the now flowering cross. You are all invited to send in short videos saying “Alleluia!” or sounding instruments and making a joyful noise. Please leave your video running for five seconds at the beginning and end of your recording so all of them can be spliced together. Send those videos to music@upcbr.org by Maundy Thursday at the latest.
