Holy Week at St. Paul and Sacred Heart of Jesus
Holy Week begins with Passion Sunday (March 24-15) when we remember the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem waiving palms and listening to the Passion of the Lord according to St Mark. The season of Lent comes to an end at sundown on Holy Thursday and we begin a three day celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is the source and center of our faith and prayer. The church calls these three days the Triduum.
March 29th – Holy Thursday at 7:00 p.m. at St. Paul – the Mass of the Lord’s Supper. We wash feet as part of our prayer; we take a collection for the poor and are invited to linger in prayer with the Lord – “stay with me”. You will be invited to have your feet washed and to wash the feet of another parishioner. It’s what servants do!
March 30th – Good Friday at 1:00 p.m. at Sacred Heart of Jesus – the Celebration of the Lord’s We remember the crucifixion, venerate the cross, take a collection for the Holy Land shrines and pray for the needs of so many in our world and church.
March 31st – the Easter Vigil at 8:00 at Sacred Heart of Jesus. We gather around a fire, light our Easter Candle, proclaim the Exsultet, read cherished stories from the Scriptures, bless water, celebrate baptize, renew our own baptism. We celebrate the gift and triumph of resurrection.
