GOOD FRIDAY 2019 Highlights

Paschal Triduum

Please join us as we observe the Paschal Triduum beginning with Holy Thursday Evening Mass.  On Holy Thursday we will be joined by the Waterford Knights of Columbus during the Mass, and the Washing of the Feet and stripping of the Altar will take place.  The Blessed Sacrament will process to the Altar of Repose at our St. Nicholas Shrine and everyone is invited to prayer near the Altar of Repose into the later evening.  The Knights of Columbus will even walk you to your cars if you would like to spend time with the Blessed Sacrament. The next evening, while the Blessed Sacrament is in the Altar of Repose we will have a Good Friday Service of the Lord’s Passion with Adoration of the Holy Cross at 7:00 pm.  Holy Communion will be distributed to the faithful.  And the final Paschal Triduum evening, the holiest of nights, is the Easter Vigil, the first Mass of Easter beginning at 8:00 pm Saturday, April 20th.  This Mass begins with the Easter new fire kindled, the Paschal Candle is blessed and then lit and that flame is then passed to the faithful’s candles.  Salvation history is recounted in the readings of the Liturgy of the Word and Mass commences with the reintroduction of the Gloria and the Alleluia.  This mass reminds us that…” we are an Easter People and alleluia is our song!” (Pope St. John Paul II Angelus; Sunday, 30 November 1986?)
