All Welcome
Due to Covid-19 precautions, if you are not vaccinated, we respectfully ask that you wear a mask.

Our 40-day season of Lent ends on the evening of Holy Thursday as the Church begins its annual celebration of the Sacred Paschal Triduum or the Three Days. Beginning with the Lord’s Supper on Thursday night and continuing to Easter Sunday evening, these three days form the most important days of the Church year. 

Why are these days so significant? Because our faith in Jesus dead and risen all comes together in these three days. We penetrate in great depth the mystery of Christ’s death and resurrection. We take three days to celebrate this great foundation of our faith because it is simply too powerful and rich for a one-day celebration. Even though we take three days, it is still one mystery we celebrate.

The purpose of the Triduum is not to participate in a historical re-enactment of Christ’s passion, death and resurrection. For we know that the Lord is risen and will never die again. It is the risen Christ who calls us together to remember all he did to save us so that by remembering the Passover of the Lord we might encounter again the saving grace of these sacred events.  © we connect.com.
