PASCHAL TRIDUUM

APRIL 1, 2, 3, 2021

These lengthy liturgies typically include lots of singing and rituals of great power – feet washing on Holy Thursday, veneration of the cross on Good Friday, and the Paschal fire and procession of light, along with Sacraments of Initiation, at the Easter Vigil.

Because it’s not possible for us to sing and perform these rituals safely in the midst of Coronavirus, we will offer an online audio/video montage for each of these days using music, video and photographs from previous years. These video presentations will be available on our website on April 1, 2 and 3.

EASTER SUNDAY

APRIL 4, 2021

Mass will be offered online beginning on Sunday morning (not Saturday evening). Those who celebrate Mass online may choose to receive Communion on Sunday morning between 10:00 and 10:30 under the portico on the east side of our school.

Mass will be offered onsite at 9:00, 10:00, and 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, April 4. Mass will be simple (no sprinkling rite, no singing). Masks and social distancing are required. Advance registration is necessary. We will not be able to admit those who have not registered.
