School is closed all next week. Classes resume Tuesday, April 22nd.
Have a blessed Easter!
Holy Thursday, April 17th the Mass of the Last Supper at 7 PM. The oils used in the annointings throughout the year will be presented. Our priests will renew their vows and Fr. Rinn will wash the feet of 12 parishioners. The transfer of the Eucharist will be at the conclusion of the Mass in preparation of Good Friday.
Good Friday, April 18th is the only day a Mass cannot be said. Instead, two types of prayer services are offered: Stations of the Cross and the Celebration of the Lord’s Passion, which includes Liturgy of the Word, the Passion, Veneration of the Cross, and Holy Communion.
Stations of the Cross are at Noon, with Celebration of the Lord’s Passion at 3pm and 7pm. The 3pm service includes the dramatized Living Passion and 7pm will feature the traditional reading of the Passion.
Saturday night, April 19th at 7pm is the greatest liturgy the Church offers – the Easter Vigil. It will start in darkness, broken by the light of Christ represented in the paschal candle. The readings recall our faith story and reveal how God has been present to humanity for all time, concluding with the wonderful news of the Resurrection. In the Litany of the Saints, we ask all the holy men and women of Faith to pray for us. Following tradition,which began shortly after the Resurrection, Easter Vigil is the time to welcome new members to the Church. We will witness all those receiving the Easter Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation.
While this is a wonderful liturgy, it is longer than usual and probably not fitting for younger children.
