Keep Holy Week Sacred
We are asking all parishioners to make sure the Holiest Week of the entireyear is kept clear by all Christians. The saving acts of Jesus have beenremembered by Christians for centuries and the challenge for us today is tomake sure Holy Week is not the same as every other week in our lives. Weare asking all ministry leaders to lead by example and clear their calendarsof anything that could wait until the following week, and plan to attendHoly Week Services. Please communicate with all your ministers to seewhat things in their lives can be put on hold and make Holy Week sacred.
March 24-31 is Holy Week
Sunday, March 24 is Passion (Palm Sunday) Mass with the proclamation of the Passion.
Thursday at 7:00 PM begins Triddum with a Mass that remembers the LastSupper, the washing of the feet and exposition of the Blessed Sacramentafter Mass until midnight. Please assign your ministry a time to come and pray, either one hour or a half hour. As Jesus prayed in the garden before hissaving act we can join him in prayer.
