Virtual Holy Week observances begin April 9
As we practice social distancing in the coming weeks, the Abbey Church on University Campus invites the community to join virtually the live broadcasting of Mass during the times listed below. Please follow the Abbey Facebook page and check back often for updates to the live broadcast schedule.
The summit of the liturgical year is the Easter triduum, from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. 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. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one day unfolding the unity of Christ’s paschal mystery.
April 9, Holy Thursday, Mass 7 p.m.
April 10, Good Friday, liturgy of the Lord’s Passion, 3 p.m.
April 11, Holy Saturday, Easter vigil Mass 8:30 p.m.
*No 10 a.m. Mass on Easter Sunday since the monks celebrate the vigil Mass on Saturday night.
