Holy Thursday

According to the Church’s ancient tradition, there is one liturgy in each community on this day. That liturgy is celebrated in the evening. The whole parish assembles, its various groups gathered as one church, to enter as one community into the first movement of the Easter Triduum.

We will celebrate the Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper at 7:30PM in the upper church. Immediately following Mass everyone is invited to spend some time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.

In keeping with an old tradition, following the Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper, we will visit three churches in the area. Anyone wishing to join this group is asked to meet in the parking lot immediately following Mass and we will carpool. We will return to St. Mary’s for Night Prayer at 11PM in the church.
