Holy Week 2016 Schedule

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of the most solemn week of the Church’s liturgical year. For nearly 40 days, we have surrendered ourselves to prayer and to the reading of Scripture, to fasting and to giving alms. Now, we are invited to an even deeper spirit of prayer as we follow Christ on his journey to the cross.

Here is the schedule of Masses for the coming week:

  • Palm Sunday (March 19 & 20): Saturday 4:30 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. & 6 p.m.
  • Daily Mass: Monday (March 21) at Noon and Tuesday (March 22) at 8 p.m. in the Chapel
  • Holy Thursday (March 24): Mass of the Lord’s Supper at 7:30 p.m. and Eucharistic Adoration until Midnight
  • Good Friday (March 25): The Passion of the Lord at noon and Seven Last Words at 7:30 p.m.
  • Holy Saturday (March 26): Easter Vigil at 8:30 p.m.
  • Easter Sunday (March 27): Mass at 11 a.m.
