We are asking all parishioners to make sure the Holiest Week of the entire year is kept clear by all Christians. The saving acts of Jesus have been remembered by Christians for centuries and the challenge for us today is to make sure Holy Week is not the same as every other week in our lives. We are asking all ministry leaders to lead by example and clear their calendars of anything that could wait until the following week, and plan to attend Holy Week Services. Please communicate with all your ministers to see what things in their lives can be put on hold and make Holy Week sacred. March 24-31 is Holy Week Sunday, March 24 is Passion (Palm Sunday) Mass with the proclamation of the Passion. Holy Thursday Thursday at 7:00 PM begins Triddum with a Mass that remembers the Last Supper, the washing of the feet and exposition of the Blessed Sacrament after Mass until midnight. Please assign your ministry a time to come and pray, either one hour or a half hour. As Jesus prayed in the garden before his saving act we can join him in prayer. Good Friday Stations of the Cross at noon, the church is open for prayer until 3:00 P.M. Good Friday service is at 7:00 P.M. Easter Vigil Saturday At 7:00 PM the “mother” of all liturgies, the most beautiful, where we celebrate the resurrection and we welcome the newly baptized into the faith community. Easter Sunday Masses Easter Sunday begins the seven week celebration of Easter until the Feast of Pentecost. I am asking everyone to make a strong effort to do the best they can to make Holy Week different from any other week of the year. Thank you for supporting this great effort to remember our salvation history.
