Holy Week Schedule 2019

WE ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO ATTEND THE HOLY WEEK – PASCHAL TRIDUUM SERVICES

The Death, the Burial, and the Resurrection of the Lord – The Paschal Triduum, the three-day Passover of the Lord, is our Easter festival. It begins on Holy Thursday at sunset. We count the days in the Jewish manner, from sunset to sunset. During the Paschal Triduum we enter into the mystery of the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord. In this mystery we are created anew, we receive rest and refreshment, and we are raised with Christ into eternal light. This “paschal mystery” is the mystery of “christening” — baptism, confirmation and eucharist — the mystery of our Passover in Christ.

The Easter Vigil is the most important liturgical celebration the year. It is the “solemnity of solemnities” and the “mother of all vigils” as St. Augustine said. We encourage everyone, especially those who may have never attended before, to come to the Easter Vigil. It is truly a unique and beautiful experience!

Night Watch of the Lord’s Resurrection – We call this night “the most desired of the year.” On this night, in sacramental mystery, God speaks once again the command, “Let there be light.” And once again there is light! On this night, so we claim, Noah’s ark opens and the animals tumble out in glee. The rainbow appears. The angel claps sea and on toward freedom. Moses leads us in song and Miriam leads us in joyful dance. On such a night of wonders, of course this is the night that the Father chose to raise his Son Jesus from the dead. Tonight Christ is risen — not long ago and far away, but tonight, here and now, here among us! With our own eyes we give witness to the wonder of resurrection as the newly baptized go into the water and are raised up — dead, buried and risen in Christ.
