Every year on the Sunday before Easter – the sixth Sunday of Lent – the church celebrates “Palm Sunday.” Most general calendars list the day as “Palm Sunday,” but if you look closely at a liturgical calendar you will see that it is actually called “Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion.” The name is appropriate as it celebrates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem but also commemorates the beginning of Holy Week and Jesus’ final journey to the cross.
The Mass of the Lord’s Supper is celebrated after sundown on Holy Thursday. We remember that at the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, Jesus offered his Body and Blood in the appearance of bread and wine and shared it with his apostles. The Mass also commemorates the institution of three pillars of the Catholic Faith: the Sacrament of Holy Communion, the sacramental priesthood, and the Mass. We are still limited to restricted seating in the church. Please register for Holy Thursday or join us online. We will not be able to accommodate you if you have not registered in advance. Thank you for your understanding.
