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

Padre Pio of Pietrelcina Prayer Cenacle

Categories: Liturgical

Join us the first and third Wednesdays of the month 6:00 – 8:00 PM.

On a September morning in 1918, praying before the Crucifix in the choir of the old church, Padre Pio received the gift of the stigmata, or visible wounds of the crucifixion, that remained in his body, fresh and bleeding, for half a century, until his death September 23, 1968.

The Holy Father John Paul II granted the title of “Venerable” on December 18, 1997, and he was canonized a saint on June 16, 2002.

The Shrine has held a prayer service to Padre Pio for many years.  Many pilgrims place their intentions in his care.  Join us the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 6:00 – 8:00 PM.
