Events, Mass times for Holy Week

As we enter Holy Week, let us pause to reflect on the profound significance of these days in the faith lives of Christians. Over the next week, the Christian community will accompany Jesus from his triumphant entrance into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to the Last Supper on Holy Thursday and, finally, to Good Friday and his death on the cross.

These days reveal the dark grace of discipleship: One cannot be a companion of Jesus while remaining an enemy of the cross. Nevertheless, Christian faith is rooted in the good news of the resurrection: on Easter Sunday, God raises Jesus from the dead. The Risen Christ continues to work in our world, calling us to new and abundant life.

As we journey through Holy Week, may we be inspired to renew our commitment to living lives of faith, hope, and love, guided by the teachings of Jesus and the spiritual wisdom of St. Ignatius. Let us carry the light of Christ’s resurrection within us, shining brightly for all to see.
