Ossining Churches Come Together for Easter Weekend

OSSINING, N.Y. – It’s common for church congregations to double on the major holidays. But congregations are expected to quadruple for the Easter weekend in Ossining.

It’s not because some members of the congregation only attend church on holy days, but because Ossining’s Trinity Episcopal Church , Briarcliff Manor’s All Saints’ Episcopal Church and Scarborough’s St. Mary’s Episcopal Church are joining with Ossining’s St. Paul’s on-the-Hill Episcopal Church for Saturday’s Easter evening liturgy. Trinity’s Rev. Cooper Conway said the four churches are celebrating the holy weekend together and have decided to share services. Likewise, St. Paul’s congregation joined at Trinity for Good Friday services.

“(Good Friday) is the most solemn day of our year but St. Paul’s and Trinity share a priest so we’re coming together,” Cooper said. “It’s a way for us to have fun and reach out to get more people to see the churches. We also split our time evenly with all four churches in the services on Saturday so the community gets to know the reverends of the other churches and so we get to know those in our community.”

But it’s not the only time the churches have come together, said St. Mary’s Rev. Sandra Seaborn.

“The four churches do it about four times a year,” Seaborn said, noting that the last joint service was held on Christmas Day at All Saints’. “It’s very fun but it’s also encouraging and very supportive. And not just for us but also our congregations.”

The Holy Saturday services begin at 7:30 p.m. at St Paul’s on-the-Hill, 40 Ganung Drive, Ossining. On Easter Sunday, there are 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. services at All Saints’ and a 9:30 a.m. Easter festival and Easter egg hunt following services at St. Paul’s. There is also a 10 a.m. resurrection festival celebration at St. Mary’s and 11:15 a.m. services and Easter egg hunt at Trinity.
