Holy Week 2015
PALM SUNDAY MASSES
On Palm Sunday weekend, March 28/29, we will have our regular Mass schedule of Saturday 5:15pm, Sunday 8:30am and 10:30am. Palm Sunday Mass follows the days of Jesus from his triumphal entry into Jerusalem to his death on the cross.
COMMUNAL CONFESSION SERVICE
On Wednesday evening, April 1, at 7:00pm we will have a communal confession service at St. Elizabeth’s. There will be 6 priests present to hear confessions that evening. These will be the last confessions scheduled before Easter.
The Adoration Chapel will be closed for the Triduum beginning at 5pm Holy Thursday, (April 2) evening. It will reopen on Easter Sunday, (April 5th) at 12 Noon. This closing is required by Church law and will enable us to participate fully in the services in our parishes, help increase our awareness of Jesus’ death and burial, and heighten our communal joy at His resurrection. May you have a prayerful Holy Week and a glorious Easter!
HOLY THURSDAY MASS
This Mass is known as the Mass of the Last Supper and it begins the most sacred time of our year, the Easter Triduum. Our Mass will begin at 7:00pm. This beautiful celebration of the Last Supper will include the washing of feet. After the homily, anyone who would like to participate, will be invited forward to have their feet washed. After the washing of the feet, we will collect the Rice Bowls. Money from the Rice Bowls is given to Campaign for Human Development which funds Food Banks in our country and throughout the world so the hungry may have food to eat. Since this Mass begins the Easter Triduum, there is no official conclusion to this Mass. It ends with a Eucharistic procession around the church as we remember Christ leaving the Last Supper and going across the valley to the garden to pray. The Eucharist is then placed on the altar until 10:00pm. Everyone is invited to spend some time in the church that evening, even just a few minutes, to pray with Jesus in the garden.
GOOD FRIDAY SERVICES
The Easter Triduum continues with our Good Friday Services. We will have services at 12:10pm and at 7:00pm. These services will be similar to each other. Both will have the proclamation of the Passion of Christ, the veneration of the cross and the distribution of Communion. The noon service will be without music and the evening service will have the choir lead us in song. The entire day should be spent in a more somber nature than normal. Please try to fast by eating smaller meals and not eating between meals and abstaining from meat products this day. We try to do small sacrifices to help us understand better the huge sacrifice of Christ as he gave his life for us. As we remember Christ dieing this day for our salvation, we celebrate this day as a good day, but a sad one.
EASTER VIGIL MASS
On Saturday evening, April 4, at 8:30pm we will conclude the Easter Triduum with the celebration of the Easter Vigil Mass! This Mass is the high point of our Church year! During this Mass we will listen to several Bible readings about how God was preparing the world for Christ and then we will celebrate his resurrection! This joyous evening will also include the celebration of the Sacraments of Baptism, Communion and Confirmation.
EASTER MORNING MASSES
We continue our Resurrection Celebrations on Easter morning with Masses at 8:30am and 10:30am. This is the morning to bask in the glory of what happened during the night….Jesus, our Savior, rising from the dead!
Lent 2015 Activities
We will have daily Mass during Lent on Mondays at 5:15pm, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 8:00am. Daily Mass is a wonderful way to come reflect on the daily bible readings and to receive the Eucharist. Daily Mass lasts about 25 minutes.
Stations of the Cross and Lenten Meal
Every Friday during Lent we will have Stations of the Cross at 6:00pm. This 20-25 minute prayer service focuses on the last part of Jesus’ life on earth. After Stations of Cross, there is a Lenten Meal in the parish hall.
Men’s Bible Study
Fr. Keith will conduct a Men’s Bible Study every week on Tuesday mornings at 6:00-7:00am in our parish hall. All men are welcome to attend. We will focus on the last chapters of Matthew’s gospel.
Women’s Bible Reflection
