Please join us in celebrating
Holy Thursday Mass
Thursday, March 29, 2018
Please join us in celebrating the beginning of the Easter Triduum - from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday - Christ's Last Supper with the Apostles. Christ told his Apostles: “This day shall be a memorial feast for you, which all your generations shall celebrate with pilgrimage to the LORD, as a perpetual institution.”
All High School Teen Group members are asked to attend the Mass and sit together to celebrate. As part of the tradition of this Holy night, Fr. Buckley will invite the Teen Group to come to the altar and have their feet washed after the Homily - just as Jesus did with His apostles. If you are an altar server, you are still able to participate in both the procession and feet washing, but you will sit with the other altar servers, not with the Teen Group.
In addition, we are asked to stay after Mass has ended and spend time in silent prayer and reflection with Christ, just as he asked His apostles to do before He was taken away to trial before his crucifixion.
In the past, we have traveled as a group to spend time with Christ at other parishes within the Diocese of Allentown. More information will follow if we are able to work this out. Diocesan insurance regulations require additional steps that we may not be able to fulfill in order to make this trip.
