Easter Triduum – Good Friday

CrucifixThe summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ’s Paschal Mystery.

The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season, and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the Easter Vigil.

Join us for Good Friday of The Lord’s Passion at Noon at St. Catherine’s and for evening service at 6:00pm at St. John’s in Morton. This service is a continuation of Mass that began Holy Thursday, but there is only service of Communion as the Lord, on this day, had passed. We venerate the Cross of Christ at this service in honor of the Cross that bore the Son of Man for our sin, and as a reminder that there is only one Cross deserving of our adoration.
