HOLY THURSDAY
April 2nd
Morning Prayer 8am
Mass of the Lord’s Supper 7:00pm
Holy Thursday is one of the truly marvelous days in our faith community. We celebrate the gift of love of Jesus, given to us for our nourishment, given to us as an example of self-less love. Tonight we celebrate the institution of the Eucharist and priesthood. Parishioners will present the Holy Oils blessed by the Bishop at the Chrism Mass on Monday evening. At the center of the evening liturgy is the mandatum— washing of the feet of 12 parishioners. As Christ came to serve and not to be served, so we the Church and every member is sent to serve. We pray that we might be faithful to the one commandment of Jesus, that we might love others in the same way that we have been loved. Where charity and love are found, there is God. Following the Liturgy, the Eucharist will be transferred to the cafeteria for private prayer until 10pm.

GOOD FRIDAY

Confessions 1- 2pm
Liturgy of the Word, Veneration of the Cross, Holy Communion 2pm
Stations of the Cross 7pm
This is the wood of the cross, on which hung the Savior of the world. Come let us worship. This is a very special day of intimacy with our Lord. It is a day to pray the Stations of the Cross. A day of fasting and abstinence, in order to sharpen our awareness and openness. A day to stand at the foot of the cross as a forgiven sinner—to stand there side-by-side with everyone else who is forgiven. It is a day of profound gratitude. My people, what have I done to you? How have I offended you? Answer me.

HOLY SATURDAY

RCIA Preparation Rites 9:30am Blessing of Easter Food at Noon in the cafeteria Confessions 4-5pm Easter Vigil 8:30pm On Holy Saturday we spend the day reflecting upon the powerful reality of Jesus’ death. What is important is that we keep this day holy and let our “se nse” of the mystery of death shape our reflection, and our longing to celebrate the Easter g ift of Jesus alive for us and with us. At the Easter Vigil we begin with the Blessing of the New Fire, Paschal Candle and the Easter Water. At the Easter Vigil we will celebrate Bap tism, Holy Communion and Confirmation with our R.C.I.A. candidates.
