Easter At OSNY

 3 DAY FAST

APRIL 9-12

Over the duration of the fast, the goal is simple: to live on less of that which seems so essential (food) in order to focus on the only thing that can truly fill us up, Jesus. Specifically it’s an opportunity for God’s people to focus on “feeding” and sustaining themselves through prayer and a focus on God’s promises.

It is suggested that over 72 hours—beginning at dinner on Sunday, April 9th and ending at dinner on Wednesday, April 12th—you join the rest of OSNY, in a solid food fast. A solid food fast is where an individual will drink necessary amounts of juice and water—supplemented with things like Jell-O and yogurt—but chooses not to eat any solid foods. In place of meal times, a provided booklet will provide you with a series of short devotions to serve as a guide for prayer.

EVENING PRAYER SERVICE

APRIL 11

In the midst of our annual 3-day fast, feed your spirit with this service of quiet reflection, prayer, and music at the Midtown pairsh.

SEDER MEAL

APRIL 13 

Join us on Maundy Thursday at the Queens parish for an interactive demonstration and explanation of a traditional Jewish passover meal—similar to the one Jesus and the disciples took part in on the first Maundy Thursday. You’ll learn what each element in the meal represents, taste each ingredient, and discover how it all points to the cross of Jesus Christ.

7:00PM | QUEENS PARISH [92-14 63rd Drive, Queens] 

GOOD FRIDAY

APRIL 14

Join us the Friday before Easter, Good Friday, as we reflect on the death of Christ, a perfect sacrifice for an undeserving people. We will follow His steps to the cross and spend time reflecting on the atoning sacrifice that would give us life as we anxiously await the resurrection.
