Holy Week & Easter 2019

In Holy Week we enter more fully into the passion, death and resurrection of Christ. 

We are with him at table on Maundy Thursday evening, when he breaks bread, blesses the holy cup and gives us the Eucharist.  We stand at the foot of the cross on Good Friday and keep watch with Mary and the Beloved Disciple, as Christ hangs there for the sins of the world.  At the Easter Vigil we see light spring forth to challenge the darkness, we hear the message of the resurrection and renew our baptismal promises. 

Come and be part of the sacred drama.
