TRIDUUM MORNING PRAYER
The “Three Days” of the Sacred Triduum—Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday—are considered the holiest of the Church year. In fact, they are considered to be ONE Liturgical Rite that is celebrated over the course of 50 hours. Since there is no morning Mass on these special days, we will have a Morning Prayer service each
in the church. This modified version of the Liturgy of the Hours uses Psalms, songs & Scripture. Start your holy week-day the ‘rite’ way!
We will celebrate the
Evening Mass of the Lord's Supper
as we commemorate Jesus' institution of the Eucharist and his instruction to "wash one another's feet" as servant-disciples. At the end of the liturgy, the Blessed Sacrament will be transferred to the altar of repose for private adoration until
, when we will conclude with
GOOD FRIDAY IS A GREAT
FAMILY OPPORTUNITY TO
GROW CLOSER TO CHRIST…
The St. Charles Borromeo Council 3960 of Knights of Columbus strongly encourages families to attend the sacred service that will take place on
. Good Friday is the one day of the year in which Holy Mass is not offered. That day the Church offers a Communion Service and Veneration of the Cross devotion in which we recall the Passion and Death of Jesus. The service is conducted at 3pm to commemorate the hour of Jesus' Crucifixion. Sadly, in recent years attendance at this service has declined. The Knights of Columbus encourage families to renew their commitment to attend this most solemn opportunity for prayer in the liturgical year. Please make an effort to join us as we remember Christ's ultimate act of love for all of us.
Easter Vigil in the Holy Night
April 3 ~ 8:00pm
We gather in the shadow of the tomb, in the darkness of the night, in sacred anticipation. We light the new fire, a sign of God's presence and power, that dispels the darkness in us and our world. We call forth the Holy Spirit
to renew the face of the earth
and welcome back the joyful Alleluia! We will also welcome our catechumen and candidate into our faith community through the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. Reserve your seat now and join us!
At the Easter Vigil, the congregation is encouraged to ring bells during the Gloria as a way of joyfully marking this holiest of all nights in the Christian year. If you will be attending the Vigil next week, please be sure to
ell—to joyfully ring out.
Time is running out to reserve your seat at one of our Easter liturgies--make your reservation today!
