Easter Triduum and Octave Greetings 2022

I pray this Easter Triduum finds you blessed and healthy.  Just two years ago we were all shocked and overcome with fear as two weeks to slow the curve became an Easter alone.  In 2022 we now very busy.  I invite you to slow down by joining us this Holy Week in the beauty of the liturgy.  Make time to join us for prayer this Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday:

  • Join us for a pot Luck at 5:30pm before if you can www.PerfectPotluck.com/XCYY6515  the parish will supply the meat and I will supply some great stories from the Holy Land.
  • Mass on Holy Thursday at 7pm
  • Good Friday we will have Stations of the Cross at 3pm and the Good Friday Service at 7pm.  
  • Holy Saturday we have morning prayer and blessing of Food at 9:30am
  • The Easter Vigil Begins at 9pm – it will be about 2 hours long since one of our elect is only 8!
  • Easter Sunday we have 9am and 11:30am Mass!

I hope you will take some time as a family to pray at home, I might suggest the following highlights from The Chosen or the Movie the Gospel of John.  See my notes and links below.

The Chosen Episode 4 https://youtu.be/wRBv1r5JJ0s

  • Peter is the Rock, but sometimes a bit shaky.  No Less Jesus called him and calls us to share the Good News!

The Chosen Episode 8 https://youtu.be/5fldru4OUAo 

  • The great way that Jesus rehabilitates the Woman at the Well, Jesus can bring anyone new life!

The Chosen Episode 15 https://youtu.be/gZX1SEdDMs0 

  • The tension is rising between Jesus and Rome, he was truly crucified because he was a threat to Rome and the Jewish leaders.

The Gospel of John https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOkUh7NkUV0 

  • Yes there are British accents and lots of blue eyes and bond hair, but this word for word the Gospel of John form the NIV bible.  What better way to spend 3 hours.  You could do 1 hour a day this Triduum.

Don’t forget we celebrate Easter the entire week and welcome 5 more new Catholics Sunday April 24 at 9am Mass.

God is oh so good!

Blessings and Peace,
Fr. Andy Booms
