Pastor's Message
Avoid Meetings and Secular Pursuits – Come to Church during Holy Week

Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion, March 29, is the beginning of Holy Week. Prepare to stay a little longer in church at Masses and liturgies during Holy Week, without cheating Our Lord by leaving early! Show your joy, faith, and devotion during Holy Week!

Tuesday evening, March 31 at 7:30, is the Mass Of Chrism at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in downtown Milwaukee. Diocesan priests will renew their priestly vows and receive the new sacramental oils that will be used in the sacraments here. The oils will be used to anoint the sick and elderly, our youth at confirmation, babies at baptism, priests at ordination, and catechumens at the Easter Vigil. The Mass of Chrism is open to the public. At least once in a lifetime, you should experience the glory of our cathedral, and the thrill of a Mass there.

The Easter Triduum begins at nightfall on Thursday, April 1, and ends at nightfall on Easter Sunday, three full days. The Triduum consists of one Easter celebration in three separate parts. These three liturgies give us the essence of the Paschal Mystery—that Christ has died; he is risen (not has risen, but is risen, as in the present tense); and he will come again.
•   Holy Thursday celebrates his sacrificial gift of himself in the Eucharist as our food for everlasting life.
•   Good Friday celebrates his saving death on the cross, by which we are redeemed.
•   Easter Sunday and its Vigil celebrate his glorious rising. So the three days of the Triduum are actually Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, but beginning Thursday evening.
These are the three holiest days of the Catholic year, and worthy of your attendance at Mass.

I invite you to avoid all meetings and secular pursuits in Holy Week, and come to church to celebrate with us the Paschal Mystery of Jesus, which unfolds slowly during the three days of the Triduum.
