From Fr. Dennis’ Desk

HOLIEST OF WEEKS
REDEMPTION AT HAND

Today, with the readings of the Passion of Jesus Christ, we embark on the holiest of all weeks:  The Sacred Triduum means “three days,” and refers to Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday.

These days keep alive our traditions, celebrating the Institution of the Holy Eucharist and the Priesthood (Holy Thursday), the Passion and Death of Christ (Good Friday), and His Resurrection (Holy Saturday, Easter).

I urge you to immerse yourselves in these mysteries, joining with our parish Family and Christians throughout the world.  Come along and pray these three days.  Through our five senses, in Word and gesture, Sacrament and symbol, and in full-throated song, let us grow together in Faith.

Peace,
Fr. Dennis Vincenzo
