Worship during Holy Week

We may be sheltered each in our own homes,
but that doesn't stop us from worshipping together

There is a LOT of information about worship here -- please take time to read it. Many people have spent endless hours preparing meaningful worship for you during this time of isolation, especially for holy Week.  If you are sitting home wondering what to do, this is your chance to worship in many and varied ways.

If you have a computer, tablet, or smartphone you can easily join us in any of these worship opportunities. 

Here is a summary of worship opportunities during Holy Week offered by Grace Church or the Dioceses of WNY & NWPA. Details about each event is listed below (you can click on the event and go right to the detail)
