Every Lent, the Spirit of God that drove Jesus into the desert, drives us into the wilderness within us where God dwells. It is in the quiet that we clear our heads and realize the path we should take if we are to become people of justice and righteousness. This is a time to find new hope and renewed vision as we move to the Easter promise.
The Easter Triduum is the summit of the liturgical year. It begins with Holy Thursday evening and concludes on Easter Sunday. Though it is chronologically three days, they are one unfolding day of Christ’s Paschal Mystery.
Join us for the Triduum Services, and in the succeeding days, rest, and enjoy your own quiet time. Services are scheduled as follows:
Holy Thursday, April 18, 6:30pm
Good Friday, April 19, 3:00pm
Holy Saturday, April 20, 6:30pm
Easter Sunday, April 21, 11:00am
This spiritual experience will be guided by Sisters JoAnn Haney, Linda Wieser, and Monique Schwirtz.
