Holy Week 2020

Pray With Us Through Holy Week

Holy Week liturgies are still being planned, please mark your calendars and join us online:

  • Holy Thursday Mass on April 9: 7:30 PM livestream—Adoration livestream continues until 11 PM, then streaming is suspended until Good Friday service. In case you missed Holy Thursday Mass, here's the recording. Fr. Richards asked the we reflect on why Jesus chose to interrupt the Passover meal with his disciples to wash their feet -- the Lord doing the work of the lowliest servant. O, how He loves us! Can you receive that love and yield to it? What is He saying to you? 
  • Good Friday Service on April 10: 3 PM livestream—after the service, streaming will continue until 4:30 PM for virtual veneration of the cross, then will be suspended until the Easter Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday. If you missed the Good Friday service, the recording is here.
  • Holy Saturday Easter Vigil Mass on April 11: 8:30 PM livestream (no 5 PM Mass) – please join us to pray for those candidates and catechumens preparing to come into full communion with Church this spring. Following Mass, the livestream will be suspended until the 8:30 AM Easter Sunday Mass.
  • Easter Sunday Masses on April 12: 8:30 AM (not 8 AM) and 10:30 AM livestreams (no 6 PM Mass). Following the 10:30 AM Mass, the livestream will be suspended until the 7:30 AM Mass Monday morning.

As with every Holy Week, scheduled, Perpetual Adoration will continue until Holy Thursday at 6 PM, then will cease until Easter Monday after the morning Mass.

On Holy Thursday, we will have Adoration of the Lord in the tabernacle (no second altar this year) via livestream or in person using current safety protocols until 11 PM. After that, the church will be closed to Adoration until Monday morning, and the livestream will only be active during the liturgies listed above.
