Easter Triduum​ Liturgical Celebrations

Holy Week is a celebration of the Paschal Mystery, the salvation offered to us because of Jesus’ passion, death, resurrection, and ascension. The rituals, prayers, and Sacred Tradition of the Church guide and inspire us to follow Jesus’ example of love and service.


“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”

    John 3: 16-17
