Holy Week Schedule 2017

“Lord, by Your Cross and Resurrection, You have set us free!”

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Grace and peace in the Lord. As we continue our journey in this Lenten season, may we always remember, “we are an Easter people.” This Easter Sunday, we proclaim once again Jesus Christ as Lord and we rejoice in the fact He has given us the sure promise of immortality. May each of us be witnesses to the Risen Christ by holiness of life and active love for our neighbor, especially the poor and all those who are in need of our love and affirmation.

Ours is a faith that leads to action. Each one of us is called to be a sacrament of His love. May that love that bursts forth from the tomb–the first Easter–live in our hearts and be expressed daily in our lives. May we grow more deeply in faith and understanding with the help of the Holy Spirit through daily prayer, Scripture reading, and the holy sacraments–especially the Eucharist. As we journey toward Holy Week and Easter Sunday, let us reach out to our brothers and sisters who have drifted from the faith and invite them back home.

Below, you will find a schedule of the Holy Week and Easter celebrations. Wishing you and yours all the blessings and joy in the Risen Christ.

“Sursum Corda … Lift up your hearts.”

Fr. Oliver & staff
