Today we celebrate Palm Sunday, marking the beginning of Holy Week, with the entrance of Jesus welcomed as the king into Jerusalem. We encourage all parishioners, if possible, to mark the week with attendance at one or more of the significant feasts and celebrations.

Wednesday evening at 7:30PM we celebrate Tenebrae at Saint Agnes Church. This evening of scripture, song, and prayers marks the end of Lent. Thursday, we celebrate the Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper at 7:30PM, also at Saint Agnes. Friday, we celebrate the Lord’s Passion at 3:00PM at Saint Mary Church, and Stations of the Cross at 7:30 at Saint Agnes. Saturday there is blessing of the Easter Food at 12:00noon at Saint Mary, and the Vigil of Easter at 8:00PM at Saint Mary as well. For those who are early morning people, there is morning prayer from the Liturgy of the Hours Thursday, Friday, and Saturday mornings at 7:30AM at Saint Mary.

Confession this week is on Monday at Saint Mary from 6:00 to 7:00PM, and Saturday morning from 10:00AM to 12:00noon at Saint Agnes.

We hope this Holy Week is a fitting end to your observance of Lent, and leads you to a true and lasting celebration of the Joy of the Risen Lord at Easter. Come and join the thousands of Catholics who worship together here at Precious Blood Parish. God bless you all.
