HOLY WEEK LITURGIES

In this time of great need, it is all the more important that we celebrate Holy Week and Easter creatively within the strict limitations of social separation. Holy Week and Easter will be celebrated in the church of St. Mary Magdalen by Father George Mukuka, Deacon Mike Malfitano, our cantor and organist within the parameters set by the Congregation of Divine Worship in Rome regarding these celebrations without a congregation. Live Stream, and Video recordings of these celebrations will be posted on our parish website and Facebook. You will be notified of these postings by our myParish App. 

As, Live Stream and Video may be available to you another option  of watching the liturgies for Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday as they are broadcast or streamed from the Cathedral of Saint Joseph in Hartford or from Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome as a way of being united with the larger Church wrought by the pandemic as we are. Then, watch the recorded celebrations on our parish website for a more local feel. Keep in mind the different time zones for anything live from Rome. Palm Sunday and Easter are scheduled for broadcast and streaming in the Archdiocese. Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Easter Vigils are scheduled for streaming.

HOLY WEEK AT HOME

For your assistance, Holy Week at Home: Adaptations of the Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Sunday Rituals for Family Prayer is available in the publication prepared by the editorial team at Liturgical Press. The prayers in this publication are not intended to replace the liturgies of Holy Week. Rather, they are a sincere effort to cultivate some of the rituals and spirit of Holy Week in our homes when public celebration might not be possible.
