Holy Week Schedule 2016
More than 160 priests, more than 60 deacons, seven bishops — including Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron and Cardinal Adam J. Maida — and numerous faithful packing the pews made for a very full house for the annual Chrism Mass on Holy Thursday, April 2.
Beautiful start to Holy Week with Palm Sunday Mass at the Cathedral of the Most Blessed Sacrament. From Archbishop Vigneron’s homily: “Our carrying the palms is a profession that we do not think Jesus in his death is proved to be an imposter. Because we have faith, we carry the palms and by them profess that we recognize in the self-offering of Jesus the very essence of who he is as our king… With renewed devotion let us, all the days of this week, meditate on the events of the Lord’s Passover. So that, as the liturgy says, by being immersed in the Passover we will come to share in His glory.”
