The summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ’s Paschal Mystery.
The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season, and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the Easter Vigil.
The liturgical services that take place during the Triduum are:

Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord’s Supper 7:00 PM, SA
Good Friday of the Lord’s Passion 3:00 PM, OLG
Holy Saturday
Easter Vigil Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord, SA, 7:00 PM

Easter Sunday Mass Schedule

Happy Easter Sunday to all of our parishioners and visitors!  As we celebrate this Easter Sunday, we remember God’s great love for us, a love so great that He sent His Son for our salvation.  We remember, also, the great love of Jesus for us, a love so great that He was willing to suffer and die for us.  What we celebrate at Easter is simply the fulfillment of the greatest love story ever told.  God loves us, each one of us , with an all-embracing passion. His one great desire is that we be happy with Him forever in heaven.  God’s love for us knows no boundaries, no limits.

As we celebrate another Easter Season, it is not just a time for candy, dyed eggs, the Easter bunny and a ham dinner.  It is, moreover, a time for us to recognize God’s great love for us.  God loves us today and always.  May we respond to that love today and every day by being the best disciple that we can be.  Happy Easter!
