Palm Sunday - April 12th & 13th

This is the beginning of Holy Week. With the Blessing of the Palms we commemorate Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem. We read The Passion of our Lord which explains the week to come in Jesus’ life.

Holy Thursday, April 17th - 7:30PM

On the start of the Sacred Paschal Triduum we are reminded of The Last Supper when Jesus washed the feet of the Apostles and where for the first time He changed bread and wine into his Body and Blood. After the service the faithful are welcome to stay in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament until 10:00PM.

Good Friday - April 18th

3:00PM - Deacon Dan Nelson will lead the Stations of the Cross. He will describe each station and ask us to pray while remembering what Jesus endured.

7:30PM - In acknowledging Jesus’ death on the Cross our Youth Ministry presents The Passion of Our Lord followed by The Veneration of the Cross and Holy Communion.

Easter Vigil - 7:30PM

In anticipation of Our Lord’s Resurrection we bless the fire and light the Paschal Candle and then enter the darkened church where the faithful holding lighted candles listen to the singing of The Exsultet (The Easter Proclamation). This is followed by Easter Mass.
