Today is Palm Sunday, the day we commemorate Jesus’ triumphant entrance into Jerusalem. Not on a stallion draped in gold like the rest of the kings, no, on a donkey in a simple cloth. The beginning of his passion and final week on earth. As we prepare to walk the way of Golgotha with our Lord, and deepen our own spiritual journey and prayer life, here are some of the digital Holy Week events happening here at Saint John Paul II Parish.
Monday through Wednesday, Father Sean will continue to celebrate Daily Mass privately and they will be taped and uploaded to our YouTube channel. On Tuesday, we will also be uploading a new “At Home Religion Lesson” featuring the Trinidum.
Holy Thursday will begin with a 9:00 AM Facebook live of Morning Prayer. Followed by a 3:00 PM livestream of the Holy Rosary and Divine Mercy Chaplet. Later that evening, Fr. Sean will privately celebrate the Mass and it will be taped and uploaded to YouTube.
Good Friday will start with a 9:00 AM Facebook live of the Stations of the Cross followed by a taped edition of Passion and Tenebrae.
Holy Saturday will begin with a 9:00 AM Facebook live of morning prayer followed by a pre-recorded Easter basket blessing going live at 1:00 PM. The Easter vigil will be celebrated privately by Fr. Sean, taped, and uploaded to our YouTube channel.
Finally, Easter Sunday Mass will be taped and uploaded to our YouTube channel and later that evening we will debut a new series where we answer Catholic questions on Reddit.
We hope you can join us and allow us to help you with your desert experience.
