Mass of the Lord’s Supper

Presider: Rev. Michael P. Hilbert, S.J.

This Mass commemorates the Passover meal that Jesus shared with his apostles on the night before his death.  At that meal the Lord instituted the Eucharist for our continual nourishment and washed the feet of his disciples as a sign to us of the call to service and humility.

The church will be closed during the morning for set-up and rehearsal. During this time the Lady Chapel will remain open. The church will re-open from 2:30 PM – 5:00 PM.

The fonts will be emptied after the Holy Thursday liturgy and filled again at the end of the Easter Vigil Service. This is in preparation for the blessing of new water during the Easter Vigil.

Easter Vigil
Time: Saturday, March 31 at 8:00 pm
Location: Church

Rev. Dennis J. Yesalonia, S.J., Presider

The Easter Vigil begins at 8:00 PM. The doors will open at 7:30 PM.

The Easter Vigil liturgy is the most beautiful liturgy in the Roman Catholic Church.

Celebrated on Holy Saturday after sunset, the Vigil Mass is regarded as the most important Mass of the liturgical year. It is replete with ancient and dramatic features that are unique to this worship service. Adults who have never been baptized are baptized at this liturgy. Baptized Christians of other denominations are received into the Church through the sacraments of Confirmation and first Eucharist. Baptized Roman Catholics who have never had religious instruction are confirmed and receive their first Eucharist. 

Because it is so rich with detail, the Vigil Mass usually lasts about three hours. 

Because the Vigil begins in complete darkness, no latecomers will be admitted into the Church until the end of the “Exultet.” Please be on time.
