HOLY THURSDAY SERVICE

Thursday, April 9, 2020
Mass of the Lord's Supper:  April 9, 7:00pm
We gather as a family to commemorate the supper of the Lord on the night before He died. We celebrate this sacrament of love unto death. We celebrate our own sacrament of service — the washing of the feet. We celebrate “being Church” and our mission to serve one another in love.

The Mass for Holy Thursday commemorates the Last Supper of Jesus and His disciples.  We put into practice a major tenet of Jesus’ teaching in tonight’s gospel: “If I, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash one another’s feet.”  At the Holy Thursday Mass we have an opportunity to get our feet washed and to wash another’s feet.

Following Mass we take time for Adoration of the Eucharist in our Chapel.  The Chapel will be open until 10:00pm for private prayer for those who wish to answer the call, “Could you not, then, watch one hour with me?” (Matthew 26:40)

GOOD FRIDAY SERVICES

Friday, April 10, 2020
Living Stations: April 10, 3:00pm
Celebration of the Lord’s Passion: April 10, 7:00pm


The emphasis today is on the cross. It is not on death. This is a day of conversion, for the love of God is made most manifest in the death of Christ. We do not mourn. We celebrate not sorrow but the victory of the cross. We move more deeply into the Paschal Mystery—the mystery of life and death in our own lives.

On Good Friday at Pax Christi we celebrate Living Stations of the Cross.  Stations of the Cross is a devotional prayer in which people meditate on a number of scenes from the passion and death of Christ. At Pax Christi, we call these stations “living” stations because our youth act out the scenes. The reflections include prayer and music. Please join us for this Pax Christi Good Friday tradition! The “Celebration of the Lord’s Passion” is to remember the passion and death of Christ today.  The service is not a Mass.  We begin with a short time of silent, reverent prayer.  Then we move into the Liturgy of the Word.

HOLY SATURDAY SERVICES

Saturday, April 11, 2020
Blessing of Easter Food:  April 11, 12:00noon at Pax Christi
The custom of bringing Easter food to the church for a blessing began in Eastern Europe, was brought to the United States by immigrants, and has become more increasingly mainstream.  A decorated basket containing a sampling of the foods to be eaten for Easter dinner is blessed on Holy Saturday.  Some of the traditional foods are:  
• A round loaf of Easter bread, usually decorated with a cross of dough,
symbolizing Christ, the True Bread
• Ham or sausage representing the overabundance of God’s mercy and generosity 
• Brightly decorated hard-boiled eggs representing new life and Resurrection 
• Salt for flavor as a reminder of a Christian’s duty to others 

Easter Vigil:  April 11 beginning at 8:00pm
On this most holy night, we gather at the fire to tell the stories we hold dear, the stories our ancestors gave us as a heritage. We wait alongside the waters of baptism to pass through the waters to the banquet table of new life. “This is the Night” for our broken world to be made whole. We renew our baptismal promises. We celebrate with our catechumens and candidates.

We are sent forth to be light for those in darkness, to be story for those without hope, to be rebirth and resurrection for those in death and decay, to be bread and wine for those who are starving for food, for love, and for God.

EASTER SUNDAY

Sunday, April 12, 2020
Sunday, April 12, Mass Times: 7:00am, 9:00am, 11:00am
As the song says, “This is the feast of victory for our God, Alleluia!”  With joy, we celebrate Christ’s resurrection from the dead.  We will continue our celebration for the 50 days of Easter until we reach the feast of Pentecost.  We also sing, “Jesus Christ is risen today.”  In “real” time the resurrection was hundreds of years ago.  But Christians believe that the resurrection has meaning in our lives each and every day.  Through the resurrection, Jesus opens for us the way to new life.

Thursday, April 23, 2020

Facilitated by Fr. Steve McMichael, O.F. M
Thursday, April 23, 6:30–8:30pm, Room 212

Our faith is built on belief in the Resurrection, which is not simply a one-time event but an experience believers are called to enter into in the here and now. What would it mean to our lives of faith to live out the call of being an Easter people? Fr. Steve McMichael, relying on the witness of the gospel accounts, will help us unpack that question. RSVP at link above.
