Ash Wednesday

While it’s not a holy day proper, Ash Wednesday is, interestingly, a day when Catholics all over the world feel the need to attend Mass.

There’s something in us that calls us to participate in this kickoff to Lent. With these ashes on our foreheads, now we can begin anew, taking on the specific challenges of renewed prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.

Join us for Ash Wednesday Mass on February 14, at 8:15am and 7pm in the Church.

The Easter Triduum: Make Holy Week a Retreat

The summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, in the eyes of the Church the tridium is seen as one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ’s Paschal Mystery (Christ’s life, death, and resurrection).

The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season, and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the

Easter Vigil.
