Celebration of the Easter Holy Triduum

Holy Week begins this Sunday on Palm Sunday and leads into the Easter Holy Triduum, which should be seen as ONE continuous commemoration of the Paschal Mystery of Christ. The three holy days begin on the evening of Holy Thursday and continue till the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically ONE DAY unfolding for us the unity of Christ's Paschal Mystery. The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord on the Easter Vigil.

The liturgical celebrations that take place during the Holy Triduum are the following:

HOLY THURSDAY: Celebration of the Lord's Supper, April 18 at 7:00pm

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament till 12 midnight

GOOD FRIDAY: Celebration of the Lord's Passion, April 19 at 3:30pm

Stations of the Cross at 3:00pm

Solemn Easter Vigil Celebration, Saturday, April 20 at 7:00pm

Easter Sunday, April 21: We celebrate the Resurrection of Christ, with Masses at: 7am, 9am and 11am.  NO 6:00pm Mass.

Once again, these Easter Holy Triduum days are unique and considered as one continuous celebration. The entire Paschal Mystery makes more sense when one participates in all three celebrations. Please remember that our parish campus parking space is limited and besides, for the last time we will have a tent to accommodate the overflow of parishioners. So come early. Give parking priority to people with disability and families with small children.

Thank you for your understanding and patience. 

A blessed Easter Triduum!

Monsignor John S. Mbinda
