The Holy Triduum

The Holy Triduum-Three Days--begins on Holy Thursday with the Mass of the Lord's Supper at 7:30 p.m.  At this Mass, we have the washing of the feet (and hands), the presentation of the holy oils, and, after Communion, the procession with the Blessed Sacrament to an altar of repose.  There people may pray before the Blessed Sacrament--keeping watch with the Lord in the garden--until Night Prayer at 11:00 p.m.

The 2nd Day--Good Friday--finds us praying at 2:00 p.m. with the Proclamation of the Passion, veneration of the cross, and Holy Communion.  The Hispanic Community will lead an outdoor Stations of the Cross at 5:00 p.m.

The 3rd Day--Holy Saturday/Easter Sunday--will find us beginning our prayer at 9:00 p.m. for the Easter Vigil.  At this Liturgy--the high point Liturgy in Catholicism--the Easter fire is blessed, the Exultant is proclaimed and all the men, women & children who have been preparing for the Easter Sacraments will be received fully into the Church.

On Easter Sunday, the Masses will be at 8:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m. & 12:30 p.m.

El Triduo Santo - Tres días - comienza el Jueves Santo con la Misa de la Cena del Señor a las 7:30 p.m. En esta Misa, tenemos el lavado de los pies (y las manos), la presentación de los santos aceites y, después de la comunión, la procesión con el Santísimo Sacramento a un altar de reposo. Allí las personas pueden orar ante el Santísimo Sacramento, vigilando al Señor en el jardín, hasta la Oración de la noche a las 11:00 p.m.

El tercer día, Sábado Santo / Domingo de Pascua, nos encontrará comenzando nuestra oración a las 9:00 p.m. para la Vigilia de Pascua. En esta liturgia, el punto más alto de la liturgia en el Catolicismo, el fuego de la Pascua es bendecido, el Exultante es proclamado y todos los hombres, mujeres y niños que se han estado preparando para los Sacramentos de la Pascua serán recibidos en la Iglesia.
