Churches across Brady and the Heart of Texas will be participating in Holy Week in conjunction with Easter Sunday. The Brady Clergy Association, an organization that invites the ministers of all churches and denominations to work together to plan community-wide services for people of all Christian faiths, has scheduled a several services for this special weekend. The Association will celebrate Holy Week with two special services for the whole community. The services will be lead by ministers from McCulloch County.

Good Friday Services will be held at the First United Methodist Church fellowship hall (3rd and Elm Streets) on Friday, April 13 from 12:05 to 12:55 p.m. The Clergy of the area will be serving potato soup. “This humble but delicious meal is a tradition in our community and a symbol of our common service,” said Clergy Association president Sheldon Johnson. During the meal the Pastors will lead the group in scripture reading and prayer. There is no charge for the meal and no offering will be taken. Easter Sunrise Service will be held at 7 a.m. Easter morning under the pavilion at Richards Park. “This is a special moving experience for our community as we gather’ together to celebrate a risen Lord as we experience the rising of the sun,” said Johnson. These services are part of the community’s traditional celebration of the joyous Easter time. Everyone is invited and encouraged to participate.
