Holy Cross is planning Holy Week and Easter services over the next several days.

March 25
Lenten Reconciliation Service
8 p.m., Lower Chapel Gathering/Baptismal Space

March 28
Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper
Holy Thursday, 7 p.m., beginning on the Lower Chapel Gathering/Baptismal Space

The Easter Triduum begins with the Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper which celebrates the institution of the Eucharist, the institution of the priesthood, and Christ’s command to practice charity based on his washing of the disciples’ feet.

March 29
Good Friday
Celebration of the Lord’s Passion, 3 p.m., Mary Chapel

On the second day of the Easter Triduum, the Christian community gathers to hear Christ’s Passion, to venerate the cross, and to share in Communion from the previous day’s Mass of the Lord’s Supper.

March 30
Holy Saturday
Easter Vigil, 8 p.m., beginning outside on Chapel Plaza

The Easter Triduum reaches its culmination in the Easter Vigil as Christians gather to kindle the new fire, to hear the scripture stories of God’s redemptive action in history, to bless the baptismal water, and to celebrate a festive Eucharist.

Easter Sunday Mass, 9 a.m., Mary Chapel

All are invited to join in the celebration of Easter Sunday Mass.
