  • The Easter triduum is made up of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday (Easter Vigil)

-> Holy Thursday:

  • The Last Supper, institution of the sacrament of Eucharist. 2This is my body, my blood."
  • Jesus washed His disciples feet, sign of self sacrifice and service. 
  • The priest washes the feet of twelve people from the congregation. The eucharist that was blessed during the service is saved for distribution on Good Friday.

-> Good Friday:

  • The day that Jesus was tried in front of Pontius Pilate and crucified to save us.
  • The priest lies prostrate  before the altar; congragtion kneels. Liturgy of the Word, from Isaiah usually, and the gospel is the passion and death of our Lord. There is a homily on Jesus' death and its significance. Liturgy of Prayers. Veneration on the cross. Eucharist.

-> Easter Vigil:
