INTRODUCTION TO THE LITURGY Theme: Who is this Man? Holy Week themes flood this celebration. The third of Isaiah’s Servant Songs introduce the theme of suffering. The great Christological hymn of the letter to the Philippians is read, telling of the humiliation of Christ. The traditional reading of the passion Narrative is continued; in this year, it is from Luke’s gospel.

FROM THE RECTOR’S DESKOur Lenten journey brings us to the most sacred and solemn week of liturgical year. Today we begin our celebration with the commemoration Our Lord’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem and then focus on his suffering with the reading of the Passion from Luke’s gospel.

On Holy Thursday at 7:00 P.M. we celebrate the Mass of the Lord’s Supper and the gift of his body and blood in the Eucharist.

On Good Friday the Church ask us to fast and abstinence to help us meditate on the mystery of the Lord’s Passion and Death. We hear the Proclamation of the Lord’s Passion and death at the 3:00 P.M. service in the afternoon and Stations of the Cross at 6:30 P.M. Friday evening.

On Holy Saturday evening our Lenten preparation comes to its final focus at the Easter Vigil at 8:00 P.M. At this special service we are reminded that Christ is Light of the world, we hear the scripture readings which recount God’s saving deed which culminated in the death and resurrection of Jesus “for us and for our salvation”. We sing the great “Alleluia”, proclaiming the mystery of Christ’s resurrection and pour sharing in that mystery through baptism.

I encourage you to make a special effort to participate in all liturgies of these sacred days.
