The Paschal Triduum

We are entering into the most holy days of the year with the Paschal Triduum of the death, burial, and the resurrection of our Lord.

Holy Thursday
The night Jesus was betrayed. The first Holy Mass. The institution of the priesthood.
On this holy night we begin our three day vigil. We come and go in silence for the sake of those who remain in prayer. We will gather for for Mass this evening and then sit with our Lord in Adoration until midnight.

Good Friday
The day Jesus died.
An early morning Stations of the Cross to share in the Passion and Death of our Lord. At the Holy Hour (3pm) we will read the story of the Passion and venerate the Cross. That evening we will participate in the Pesame, or the Seven Sorrows of the Blessed Mother of Christ.

Holy Saturday
A time of reflection and waiting - the time of weeping that lasts for the night while awaiting the joy that comes in the morning.

Easter Sunday
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia! Our Lord has risen!

Wishing you the most blessed Easter from the Creamer family!
