Holy Week Mass, Confession and Orchestra Mass Schedule at Assumption Grotto

NOTE: I'm reposting this from the other day.  With the Triduum upon us starting tomorrow, I will leave this post up and spend my time focused on Holy Week. 

UPDATE: I have photos from Holy Thursday. Grotto was packed.  I also have photos from the Tre Ore service on Good Friday.  I will be editing these and post them sometime soon after Easter, along with what I get in the coming days.

The Lourde's Legacy is out and in it is the schedule for Holy Week.  My understanding is that the Triduum will be in the Extraordinary Form (1962 Missal).  You can see photos from the 2009 Triduum in EF in this post.

You will want to bring a missal, or special booklet that was being sold some years ago for the Triduum, or go to this site and print out what you will need for the respective day (go with post 1955).


April 21 Holy Thursday: 7:00 p.m. Mass (No morning Masses are permitted.)
Confessions: 10:30-11:30 a.m.; 3:30 - 4:30 p.m.

April 22 Good Friday: Services from Noon until 3:00 p.m.

Note: These will be in the Extraordinary Form (1962 Missal). More than likely they will be Solemn High Masses, but it is always subject to availability of clerics.
