Triduum & Easter 2021

This year for the Paschal Triduum, we are multiplying the number of services to allow for more people to participate in a socially distanced way.  Since we didn’t have the Triduum at all last year, I am asking everyone to come to as much as they can this year.  We will pray the Liturgy of the Hours in English, with booklets prepared for those offices, throughout the Triduum.  The services will be simpler and shorter this year.
