What is the Triduum? 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 celebrations that take place during the Triduum are:
Mass of the Lord’s Supper- Holy Thursday
Mass –April 18th, 7:00 PM
(no 9:15 am Mass| no Reconciliation)
The Passion of the Lord and Veneration of the Cross-
April 19th, 7:00 PM
Blessing of the Easter Foods – Holy Saturday
Saturday, April 20th, 12:00 Noon
Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord- EASTER
Saturday Vigil Mass – April 20th, 8:00 PM
Sunday Mass – April 21st 6:00 AM Sunrise Mass in the Courtyard
8AM, 10AM, 12PM (Spanish) (No 5:30 PM Mass today)
