Liturgical Notes:

 HOLY WEEK is APRIL 13-20 try to go to Daily Mass. Please, do your best to participate fully in the Sacred Triduum!


Three days that changed the world. One Christ Event (Paschal Mystery of Jesus’ Life, Death and Resurrection) that is celebrated as ONE LITURGY in three distinct parts: Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Paschal Vigil.

   If possible, the faithful are encouraged to observe the Paschal Fast. The Paschal Fast is during the Triduum, from after Mass on Holy Thursday until after the Paschal Vigil Mass. It is the most ancient fast of the Church, especially to pray for those who will receive their Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist) at the Paschal Vigil Mass (April 19th at 7:00 PM).

 Holy Thursday, April 17, 2014, (No 6:40 AM Mass) Lord’s Supper Mass starting at 5:30 PM (with incense)

We will have adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at the Altar of Repose (side altar) after this Mass until 10:30 PM.

 Some Catholics have the practice of visiting 7 different churches for Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament in “Garden of Gethsemane”

Holy Thursday recalls the institution of the Holy Eucharist and the institution of the Sacred Priesthood (Holy Orders).

 Remember: Good Friday is a day of required fasting for all Catholics age 18—59.

One is permitted to take one regular meatless meal and if needed two smaller ones that together do not equal another regular sized meal. Snacking in between meals is not permitted on Good Friday.

 Good Friday, April 18, 2014:

· No Mass at 6:40 AM

· Way of the Cross (Stations) offered at 12 Noon in church

· Followed by sacred silence in the bare church until 3:00 PM

· Father Nicholas Schumm will hear Confessions in the church from 12:45 PM until 2:45 PM.

· At 3:00 PM we will begin the Sacred Liturgy of the Passion, veneration of the Cross and the  Pre-Sanctified Communion (Technically, this Liturgy is not a Mass, on Good Friday the Church forbids the Mass)


 Holy Saturday, April 19, 2014:

No confessions at 3:00 PM

No regular Vigil Mass at 4:00 PM

The Paschal Vigil Mass will begin at 7:00 PM with the blessing of the new fire. This Paschal Vigil is considered the “Mother of All Feasts and Liturgies” it will have new light, incense, many Scriptures, 6 Baptisms and other Sacraments and it will be at least 1 1/2 hours in length.
