LENTEN DAY OF REFLECTION AND RECONCILIATION IN PREPARATION FOR HOLY WEEK
Three Doorways into Holy Week: Stories that can Change our Lives Glorying in the Cross
Saturday, March 24 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Check-in, coffee 8:30 a.m
“We should glory in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ”: these are the first words, the entrance antiphon, of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper, the beginning of the Triduum. The Scriptures of Lent, especially the Gospels of the third, fourth, and fifth Sundays in year B – this year – prepare us to enter into the three most solemn days of Holy Week and focus on the mystery of our salvation: the death and Resurrection of the Lord.
We will spend our time together reflecting on these Gospels to prepare ourselves to Glory in Christ’s Cross.
