Holy Week & Easter Schedule
Holy Week is my favorite time of the Church year. It is a week that truly hits all of our senses.
Holy Thursday enlivens our senses of smell and taste as we celebrate the Last Supper. Incense is used to sanctify the altar and the bread and wine at Mass and we receive the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus in the Eucharist.
Good Friday gives the opportunity to venerate and touch the wood of cross on which hung our salvation.
Holy Saturday brings us from darkness into light as we light our individual candles from the Paschal Candle as it enters the Church.
Finally, the joy of Easter Sunday can be heard in the shouts of Alleluia and the beautiful music that proclaims Christ's victory over sin and death.
We invite you to be with us on this journey as we celebrate the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
