Holy Thursday - April 18th

7pm Mass:
Music by the 9am Band

On Holy Thursday, we celebrate Christ’s gift of the Eucharist to his friends and the church. Holy Thursday also includes the Washing of the Feet, when the celebrant ritually reenacts when Jesus washed the feet of his disciples. The night ends with the transfer of the Eucharist to the altar of repose in the Auditorium downstairs.

Please note that there is no 9am Mass on Holy Thursday.

An hourlong drama entitled The Tale of Three Trees, that also includes music by the Junior Choir, Veneration of the Cross, and something special to take home with you.
