Pastor’s Desk

Dear Friends,
A parishioner asked a question of me, “Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent, when does Lent end?” The last day of Lent is Wednesday of Holy Week.

         Then we enter into the “Triduum” (Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday). These days are days of great reflection and prayer. That means that daily Mass is not celebrated on the days of the Triduum. Instead we enter our spiritual gathering at “The Lord’s Supper” (Holy Thursday), “The Passion of the Lord” (Good Friday) and the “Easter Vigil – Celebration of Light” (Holy Saturday).
         I hope that you will plan to join us for the “Triduum”.

Peace, Monsignor Martin P. Ryan, D. Min.

         We ask your generosity in feeding the poor and hungry. The Loaves and Fishes Campaign benefits the inner city soup kitchens and food pantries in the Diocese. Please set aside some money each week as part of your Lenten fast and make a contribution to the poor.
