Holy Week Schedules

Due to restrictions on capacity this year, there are a few changes to our usual procedures and schedules, in accordance with Archdiocesan guidelines. Notably, at both parishes there are two extra services on Good Friday, and an extra Mass on Easter Sunday. Some services will also be live-streamed. Registration is required for attendance, so please use this link to find registrations for each Mass or service.

Due to the extremely limited capacity, we are asking parishioners to register only for one of the Triduum services (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Stations of the Cross, Easter Vigil), owing to the fact that the combined capacity of these services is still fewer than what we would have on a regular Sunday. That is, please register EITHER for Holy Thursday OR one of the Good Friday services OR the Easter Vigil. Then you may ALSO sign up for a Mass on Easter Sunday.
