2019 Easter Triduum Mass Times

easter-triduum

April 18 – 21, 2019

With joy and thanksgiving we celebrate the Paschal Mystery, the great victory Jesus Christ won for us over sin and death. From the USCCB:

The summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ’s Paschal Mystery.

The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season, and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the Easter Vigil.

Here are the times at nearby chapels and parishes where Easter and associated celebrations will be available. (Follow the links to the hospitals for the location of their chapel.)
