Among the most special times of the entire church year is Holy Week, which commemorates the last week of Jesus’ earthly life. Holy Week starts on Palm Sunday, April 10 and culminates on Easter Sunday, April 17. With music, word, story, and scripture, we will observe this special time of year. Mattapoisett Congregational Church invites you to join us and bring a friend.

Wave your palm fronds high as we recall Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and join us as we welcome our interim pastor, Reverend Doctor Richard Wolf to the pulpit.
