Come celebrate the Holy Week Triduum with us... one big liturgy celebrated over three days
- Holy Thursday, March 29 at 7 PM: Mass of the Lord's Supper. We gather to celebrate the institution of the Holy Eucharist at the "Last Supper" and as Jesus did for his disciples, we wash one another's feet in an act of humility.
- Good Friday, March 30 at noon: Celebration of the Lord's Passion. We gather to hear the story of our Lord's passion and death as recounted in the Gospel of John. We kneel before the cross and lay our burdens at the foot of Jesus. We remember that "he was wounded for our transgressions..." (Isaiah 53:5). Although this is the one day of the year when no Mass is celebrated, Communion will be served.
- Holy Saturday, March 31 at 8 PM: The Great Easter Vigil. We gather at night around a fire. We hear the stories from Hebrew Scriptures of how our ancestors met the One, True God and how they, and we have been called and delivered to be God's own people. We light up the darkness with a new pascal candle. We celebrate the resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We witness the baptism of the Elect in a giant pool of water. They are anointed and sealed in the Holy Spirit in Confirmation and they share for the first time in the Holy Eucharist. It is the most wonderful of liturgies with light, music, water and oil. It is the Mother of all Vigils!
