MARCH 28 (8:30-9:30 PM)

Join us as Holy Week begins, “For creation awaits with eager expectation the revelation of the children of God.” (Romans 8:19)

Earth Hour is a united, worldwide conversation of energy. The hour of “lights out” for the Eastern Time Zone will be 8:30pm-9:30pm.

We will be surrounded by song and prayer in many languages in the beautiful candlelights of the church.

You won’t want to miss this collaboration with the people of the parish, the Basilians and the Jesuits.


APRIL 1 (7:00 – 8:00 PM)

Latin for “shadows” or “darkness”, the ancient service of Tenebrae was originally celebrated on the early mornings of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday.

This evening will feature a condensed version of the service, with prayers, readings, and choral music responses, to usher in the beginning of the Triduum.

Confessions will be offered during the service for those interested.

Homilies from Fr. Chris
