MESSAGE FROM FATHER JONATHAN
Dear Parishioners,
Congratulations to Deacon Austin Ammanniti who was
ordained this weekend. He is with us for the Sunday Masses.
Please plan on coming to as many of our Holy Week Services
that you can. The Chrism Mass at the cathedral is Tuesday
morning; we will have a communion service here at the time of
the regular morning Mass. Mass on Wednesday morning will
be followed by confessions for those who would still like to
celebrate this sacrament before Easter. Mass of the Lord’s
Supper is the only Mass permitted on Maundy Thursday. That
will be at 7:00 p.m. I will lead stations of the cross on Good
Friday at noon. The Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion with
veneration of the cross and Holy Communion is at 1:00 p.m.
The Easter Vigil Mass with reception into the Church for our
RCIA candidates is at 8:00 p.m. This is the only Mass
permitted on Saturday, and there will not be confessions. Easter
Masses are at 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
