HOLY WEEK is the most important time of year for us as Christians.
Although we are unable to gather this year as a community to pray and reflect on the
Paschal Mystery, the death and resurrection of Jesus, we can gather virtually.

Bishop Soto has received instructions from the Vatican Congregation for Divine Worship
and the Discipline of the Sacraments regarding liturgical protocols for Holy Week.
The protocols omit some portions of each liturgy noted below.


Private Masses will be live streamed from YouTube

A link to each of the Masses will also be posted to Facebook

Following is the schedule of our YouTube live streamed Holy Week liturgies:

Thursday, April 9 - HOLY THURSDAY - Mass live-streamed at 7:00 pm
