Holy Week Schedule at Assumption Grotto

The schedule, as posted earlier, is below.  We are blessed to have Father Aidan Logan, o.c.s.o. with us for Holy Week and he will be involved in the Sacred Triduum which uses the 1962 Missal at Assumption Grotto.  Father Logan was recently named the Vocations Director for the Archdiocese for Military Services, USA.  He was introduced on page 24 in the current issue of Salute, the archdiocesan magazine.  With almsgiving a big part of our Lenten sacrifices, I'll use this as an opportunity to encourage you to click that donate button in the upper right hand corner of the website as there are many needs for the spiritual care of our men and women of the military.

Something worth noting on Thursday is that if you stay for a bit after the Mass, you will witness the altar formally being stripped.  The Liturgy of the Hours is chanted by the priests and some of the altar boys after that, in Latin.  The Church goes silent and people come and go through Midnight spending time before the Altar of Repose shown in the photo at top.  It follows a procession (see my Holy Thursday pics from 2009 here).
