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.

The liturgical services that take place during the Triduum are:

  • Mass of the Lord’s Supper 
  • Good Friday of the Lord’s Passion
  • Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord

Filipino Community Celebration

Categories: Other

Sunday, July 23, 2017 at 11:00 am mass

11:00 am Mass, followed by Procession & Reception with traditional Filipino Cuisine 

Our Lady of Manaoag has a permanent home at the Shrine

Folk tradition has it that the Blessed Mother showed herself to a middle aged farmer and gave him the message on where she wanted her church to be located, She showed herself on a low tree amidst the glow of heavenly light. Manaoag is known more as a pilgrimage town than anything else.

This feast has been celebrated at the Shrine since 2003.   The Shrine’s Filipino community celebrates our Blessed Mother Mary with their gift of song, worship and tradition.   Much like the Italian custom, you depart full of the Holy Spirit and good food.
