Holy Week of our Lord's Paschal Mystery

After living and celebrating the holy and penitential season of Lent, we enter into Holy Week, which is the holiest and most important time in the Liturgical Year. It is the time we enter into the Paschal Mystery of Christ in a profound way. This reaches its climax in the celebration of the Triduum, the greatest of all liturgies, on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigil when we truly walk with Christ and enter into his saving mystery. Even though the Triduum is celebrated over three days, it is actually one liturgy that begins Holy Thursday evening and concludes with Evening Prayer of Easter Sunday. We literally walk and journey with Christ from the celebration of the Last Supper, to the Agony in the Garden, through the Passion and Crucifixion, unto the celebration and joy of the Resurrection. It is a powerful and moving experience that all Catholics should experience.

Confession during Holy Week

"Go directly to confession, don't wait!" Pope Francis told an estimated 20,000 people in St. Peter's Square.  "Jesus will be there and he's even nicer than the priest."  Saint Brigid will have additional visiting priests this Holy Week on Wednesday evening at 6:00 PM and again on Good Friday, from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM, for all those in need of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Receive the gift of our Lord's pardon, mercy and forgiveness. “I tell you,” the pope said, “every time we go to confession, God embraces us and celebrates.”  Due to this special Holy Week Schedule, there will be NO early morning confession on Good Friday and Easter Monday. 

Divine Mercy Novena & Sunday Holy Hour, April 12th at 3 PM

The Divine Mercy Novena began as a private devotion which Our Lord revealed to Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska. This series of prayers are said for nine straight days, beginning on Good Friday. To conclude the novena, join us on this special Divine Mercy Sunday as we ask for God's mercy and give him thanks. You are invited to attend a special Eucharistic Holy Hour devoted to the Divine Mercy, Sunday, April 12th at 3:00 PM, in the Sanctuary. There will be a Liturgy of the Word, a short reflection, intercessions, recitation of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, ending with Benediction and a period of silent Adoration.

Divine Mercy Sunday is celebrated on the Second Sunday of Easter. Read this National Catholic Register Article to learn more of her history, and her promoted devotion; the "Chaplet of Divine Mercy".
