Enjoy a traditional Anglican experience, in the heart of Carlsbad Village, to commemorate the Passion of Christ and His Resurrection! Childcare and Sunday School programs are also offered.

Holy Week is significant in the church calendar because it is the remembrance and celebration of Our Lord’s saving acts in history. For the spiritual pilgrim, it is an especially compelling spiritual experience as we travel with Our Lord in real time for an entire seven day period.
