The month of May brings opportunities to celebrate our new life through Christ’s Resurrection. Our hearts prepare for the Holy Spirit’s movement on Pentecost, renewing the face of the earth.
From Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday, the Diocesan Office of Worship has planned several events.
After 40 days of fasting, we are prepared to begin 50 days of celebration. At the same time, we continue our solidarity with and service to our neighbors in times of poverty in body or spirit.
See your local parish bulletins for details on the celebration of Holy Week, including Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Vigil.
The Easter Vigil will be on Saturday, April 8, 2023, concluding the Triduum. All parishes in the Diocese will hold this service of light at 8:00pm or later.
Support the CRS Rice Bowl through your local parish or give online to this annual collection to help families put food on the table.
Diocesan offices will be closed in respect for the Easter Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Resurrection) and Easter Monday. Please enjoy your celebration.
“Alleluia! Christ is Risen!” The Easter season begins on Sunday, April 9, 2023 with the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Join your local parish for praise and worship.
