Holy Week services continue

Holy-Week-1

A large crowd gathered Monday in the chapel at St. Maurice Catholic Church as the Rev. John Mathieu, pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Brewton, brought the first message of Holy Week services planned through Friday.

A special combined choir — with members representing area churches — provided a musical addition to Monday’s service.

Holy Week services will continue through the week with a final service planned for Friday. Daily services begin promptly at noon and are followed by a luncheon provided by the host church. Although the lunch is free, a donation made would benefit the Brewton Christian Community Benevolent Fund.

Tuesday’s service will be hosted by First Presbyterian Church on Belleville Avenue with First Baptist Church of Brewton’s pastor, the Rev. Jack Fitts bringing the message.

Wednesday’s services will be held at First Baptist Church of Brewton on Belleville Avenue with the Rev. Ed Glaize, pastor of First United Methodist Church bringing the message.

Thursday’s services will be held at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church on Escambia Avenue wit the Rev. Adrian Cook, pastor of St. Maurice Catholic Church, bringing the message.

Good Friday services will be held at First United Methodist Church on Belleville Avenue with the Rev. Rob Dixon, pastor at St. Stephens Episcopal Church bringing the message.

The services are open to the public and area residents are encouraged to attend the services and a time of fellowship each day.
