Holy Week

04-14-2019Pastor's LetterMsgr. Gregory W. Gordon

Holy Week is ordered to the commemoration of Christ’s Passion, beginning with his Messianic entrance into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday.

Holy Thursday’s Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper is the only Mass permitted in parishes on Holy Thursday. The Faithful are encouraged to adore the Blessed Sacrament for a suitable period of time during the night, until midnight.

On Good Friday, the Celebration of the Lord’s Passion is commemorated in the afternoon. The Viacrucis Viviente will precede these celebrations.

On Holy Saturday we celebrate the Easter Vigil in the Holy Night, always after nightfall.

Please join us in this holiest of weeks and during these most sacred days for our celebrations of the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of our Lord in the Paschal Triduum.

Our Holy Week and Holy Triduum Schedules are in this bulletin.
