Our last post was at the start of Lent, and now we’re at the end of Lent. What that means is…EASTER IS ALMOST HERE! But until then, hope you are also looking forward to the Triduum services happening these next couple of days leading up to Easter!
What is the Triduum?
The Triduum (or Easter Triduum) is the summit of the Liturgical Year, lasting from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days (where the name “Triduum” comes from), 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 Lent, and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the Easter Vigil.
How can I celebrate the Triduum?
The liturgical services that take place during the Triduum are:
- Mass of the Lord’s Supper
- Good Friday of the Lord’s Passion
- Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord
How can I celebrate Easter?
The greatest way you can celebrate Easter is at the Easter Vigil Mass on Saturday night, which is the most significant Mass of the year!
Also, as we’ve been announcing: SJCCM will being having its Easter Celebration this Sunday (4/20) from 10am-2pm in the Parish Hall. So come celebrate that way too!
