“The summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to 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 presence of the Risen Lord and his saving work permeates the entire liturgical year: Advent, the Christmas Season, Lent, the Easter Season, and Ordinary Time.”
Excerpt from United States Catholic Catechism for Adults
Thursday, April 2, 2015..7:00pm
Holy Thursday evening is the beginning of the Easter Triduum. During the Mass of the Lord’s Supper, we once again experience Scripture through the washing of feet and the dressing of the bare altar. After Holy Communion, the consecrated Eucharist is carried to the chapel for adoration and reposition. The priests and deacons begin the procession and the congregation follows with singing or in silence. The chapel will be open until midnight for adoration and private prayer, symbolizing the time Jesus spent in the Garden of Gethsemane.
Friday, April 3, 2015...3:00pm
The Passion of Our Lord Service begins at 3:00pm. According to the Church’s ancient tradition, no Mass is celebrated on this day. The celebration of the Lord’s passion consists of three parts: Liturgy of the Word, Veneration of the Cross, and the reception of Holy Communion. The Eucharist we receive on Good Friday was consecrated at the Holy Thursday Mass. The Church is open for private prayer until 9:00pm.
Saturday, April 4, 2015...8:30pm
Easter Vigil Mass
Easter Vigil Mass begins near sundown. On this most holy night which begins in a darkened church, the faithful will witness the Blessing of Fire and beautiful Scriptures, as well as the celebration of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist of the catechumens. Candidates will enter into full communion with the
Catholic Church with their Profession of Faith, Confirmation, and First Eucharist.
Easter Vigil Mass satisfies the Sunday obligation.
