Holy Week 2019 Schedule

DeaconJustin-GoodFriday2018-webPalm 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.

    • Sat.: 4:30 p.m.; Sun.: 11 a.m. & 6 p.m.

    • Mass of the Lord’s Supper at 7:30 p.m.
    • Eucharistic Adoration until Midnight
  • Good Friday (April 19)
