Good Friday

The Triduum continues on Good Friday with a solemn service commemorating Jesus' trial and crucifixion. There is no celebration of the Eucharist on this day - a stark illustration of Christ's death, and the weight of his absence. Communion is distributed from the reserved Sacrament - the last time it will be received until the Easter Vigil.

Holy Saturday Morning Prayer

On Holy Saturday the Church is, as it were, at the Lord's tomb, meditating on his passion and death, and on his descent into hell, and awaiting his resurrection with prayer and fasting. This service of Morning Prayer calls us to reflect on the middle place between Christ's crucifixion and his resurrection. We will also hear together the words of "An Ancient Homily for Holy Saturday," an anonymous sermon from the fourth century.

Las Posadas

Las Posadas

Walk with Mary and Joseph as they journey from Inn to Inn seeking shelter…and a place for the Word of God to be born.  Will they find the shelter they need?  Might we give them room in our hearts?  Could it be that the Word desires to be born in each of us?
 
Las Posadas (“The Inns” in Spanish) is a Mexican Advent tradition that speaks to the hospitality at the heart of conversion to the Christian life of love and what it might mean to practice the Gospel call to welcome Christ by welcoming the stranger and the seeker among us.
