Looking Forward to Holy Week
This Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week. On Thursday evening, we enter into the Paschal Triduum -- the holiest days of the liturgical year, during which we remember and celebrate Christ’s Passion, Death, and Resurrection. Although we cannot gather to worship together in the sacred liturgies, there are many ways to observe these holy days in our own homes! Our Archdiocese has a wonderful Holy Week At-Home Guide for Individuals and Families - Click Here - full of suggestions. Read on for some quick ideas, and for Fr. Phil’s messages!

Parish Prayer
Mass Intentions
Although public Masses are suspended, Father Phil continues to offer Mass privately for our requested intentions. Please keep our parish weekly Mass Intentions in your daily prayers as well.
The practice of offering Masses for others, living or deceased, is a long standing tradition in the Catholic Church. When we face the death of someone, even a person who is not Catholic, to have a Mass offered for the repose of their soul and to offer our prayers is beneficial and comforting.

If you would like to have a Mass offered for a loved one, please stop by the parish office, or call 892-4006. There is a customary $10 stipend per individual Mass intention.
