HOLY THURSDAY (6:30 pm) — The Agape Meal will be served to the entire parish by the Pastoral Council, the Knights of Columbus, and those celebrating Confirmation at the Easter Vigil. This is intended to be a sign of their ministry in action. In addition, during the service, these individuals will have their feet washed as a symbolic invitation to all to accept a call to serve. A simple meal is being prepared. This will allow all members of the parish community to participate fully in this great celebration, from beginning to end.

GOOD FRIDAY (7:30 pm) — The Dramatic Reading of the Passion of Jesus and Communion Service.

THE GREAT EASTER VIGIL (Holy Saturday, 8:00 pm) — is always followed by a reception. We need desserts and the like – please bring the desserts when you join us, as we welcome new members into our community of faith. The reception is being coordinated by Mary Nagy.
