Dear People of St. Andrew the Apostle:

Today we enter Holy Week. Our celebration of Palm Sunday begins with a remembrance of the triumphal entry of Jesus into the City of Jerusalem. The crowds welcomed Him as king, shouting Hosanna and waving palm branches. Before the week is over, however, the crowd was shouting, "Crucify Him".

Jesus demonstrates to us all, in the midst of his pain and suffering, that God gives us an inner strength to go on when it seems fruitless, to continue hoping when it seems hopeless, to believe even when we feel abandoned. The pain and suffering is not the end — there is resurrection and new life on the other side.

Holy Week is different from all other weeks in the Church calendar. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday we will celebrate Mass at 8:30am as usual.

On Wednesday of Holy Week

  • We will NOT have Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
  • We WILL have Confessions from 5:30-7:00pm
  • At 7:00pm we will have a traditional service of Tennebrae, but NO Mass.

Then begins the season of the Triduum– the three high holy days of Christianity.

Invitation to the Triduum

Lent officially ends on Holy Thursday. Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday are our three "high holy days", or in Latin, TRIDUUM. This is the shortest season of the Church year and invites us to focus on the Last Supper, the Passion and Death of Jesus, and anticipate the empty tomb of the Resurrection.

Holy Thursday – Feast of the Lord's Supper – Celebration at 7:00pm
(There is NO 8:30am Mass on Holy Thursday)
Includes John's account of the Lord's Supper where Jesus washes the feet of His apostles, the betrayal of Judas, the institution of the Eucharist, and a procession of the Eucharist to a special reserved area where we can join Jesus "in the garden" until midnight.

Good Friday
(There is no 8:30am Mass on Good Friday)
Church Open from 12:00noon to 3:00pm for private prayer
Stations of the Cross: 2:30pm
Liturgy of the Lord's Passion – Celebration at 7:00pm
Includes John's account of the Passion and Death of Jesus, veneration of the Cross, communion (from hosts consecrated on Holy Thursday), and time to pray with Jesus who is laid in the tomb. (Day of fast and abstinence)

Holy Saturday – the Great Vigil of Easter – Celebration at 7:00pm
(There are no Confessions and no 5:00pm Evening Mass on Holy Saturday)
Includes 3 readings from the Jewish scriptures, a gospel account of the empty tomb, Baptisms, Confirmation, and 1st Eucharist for those becoming Catholic or completing their initiation as Catholics. The first Mass of Easter.
