This has been a very beautiful Holy Week so far. Yesterday (Tuesday) Fr. Ricardo and I was with Bishop Sheridan and our brother priests for an afternoon of a great conference about the Priesthood, a Holy Hour of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament, then a wonderful dinner and the beautiful Chrism Mass, all at Saint Mary’s Cathedral in Colorado Springs. Of course during the Chrism Mass the Holy Oils were blessed and I brought our newly blessed oils home last night.
Please remember that our parish offices are closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in order to give both the clergy and the staff the opportunity for some prayerful reflection during these Holy Days.
So the Schedule is as follows:
Wednesday April 12:
Tenebrae – 7pm
Holy Thursday April 13:
Mass of the Lord’s Supper – 7pm
Don’t forget to bring in the Rice Bowls and a donation of food for the poor.
