Marking Holy Week

With Holy Week upon us, we will be offering many opportunities for our school community to enter more deeply into the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Our morning prayer each day will be a short passage from the Gospel of Mark.  Today I read the section of Judas agreeing to betray Jesus.  Today at the start of both lunch mods, we will pray the Seven Last Words of Jesus in our chapel.  Tomorrow Father Richard Dion will be here for confessions from 11am-12pm and on Wednesday we will pray the Seven Sorrows of Mary at the start of each lunch mod.

On Holy Thursday we will have our traditional Holy Thursday Prayer Service in the morning with the Washing of the Feet and the Mystery Players will present their rendition of the Passion of Christ.  That night, we will have our annual Holy Thursday Pilgrimage where we travel to five churches to spend time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.  We begin at 7:30pm with Compline (Night Prayer) at Saint Anselm Abbey Church then go to St. Raphael's, St. Anthony's, St. Joseph Cathedral, and St. Catherine's.  We then end our night with ice cream at the Puritan Backroom.
