7:00pm Tenebrae (the ancient office of matins and lauds prayed solemnly) followed by Disposal of Blessed Articles.
Confession follows Tenebrae

The service of Tenebrae, or “shadows”, grew out of a combination night prayer and early morning prayer, with an additional focus on the commemoration of the Passion of our Lord. This service is tradition, used in the last days of Holy Week, to impress upon the hearts of believers the awful consequences of sin and the magnitude of the Savior’s sacrifice.

Please join us immediately after the Tenebrae for a prayer service as we burn last year’s Holy Oils, palms, and other religious articles in preparation for the parish’s reception of this year’s Holy Oils. Confession will follow.

Holy Thursday, Apr 18

7:30am Morning Prayer
7:00pm Mass of the Lord’s Supper

During the Last Supper, Christ performs an act of love and service in the washing of the feet of His disciples. This humble act was Jesus’ way of teaching His disciples and us to give respect and serve.

One way that we do this, as a parish, is that we remember those who go hungry by bringing a non-perishable food item to be placed around the altar during Offertory on Holy Thursday. The food donations and any monetary donations will be given to the Soup Kitchen.

Following the Mass is outside Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament until Midnight
