Holy Thursday: Only one Mass is permitted this day, the Mass of the Lord’s Supper, which will be offered at 7:00 PM in St. Theresa’s Church. At the conclusion of Holy Mass, the Blessed Sacrament is carried in solemn procession to an altar of repose. The church will be open for silent adoration and prayer until 9:00 PM. Please make a visit!
Good Friday: This like all Fridays in Lent are meatless days, but also a day of abstinence (less food). No Mass is permitted on this day of Christ’s death. At 3:00 PM The Chaplet of Divine Mercy and Stations of the Cross will be prayed at the outdoor shrine. This year, indoor stations will be prayed at Noon with Deacon Rick at OLGH Church. The Service of the Lord’s Passion, featuring veneration of the cross and reception of Holy Communion, will be offered at 12:00 PM at St. Theresa’s and 6:00 PM at OLGH. The Noon service will feature a more traditional liturgical ceremony with chant music.
Holy Saturday: The high point of the liturgical year is the Easter Vigil Mass at 7:00 PM at OLGH. (Remember, there is no 4:30 PM Mass this day.) The Vigil begins in darkness. We light the Easter fire and Paschal Candle, chant the Exultet. The bells ring and the statue veils are lifted at the Gloria and Alleluia is heard once again! Please join us for these magnificent and faith filled liturgies!
