We embark this week on the holiest of our Christian days. The Three Days, this Easter Triduum (Latin for “three days”), is the center, the core of the entire year for Christians. In these days we will once again, with renewed focus, remember the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ and we are also challenged toward a personal share in the passion of Jesus Christ.

Message from Fr. Ron
LIVESTREAMS OF CHRISM MASS & HOLY WEEK/EASTER LITURGIES
with Bishop Donald Kettler
“Although we cannot be physically together, this is a way for us to gather as a diocesan church and pray together during these challenging times. The Lenten season is always a time to reorient our lives to Christ, and we’ve been called to make extra sacrifices this year as we await the promise and hope of Easter. Thank you for your faithfulness in these days. I am praying for you, and I ask you to join me in praying for our world. May God bless you and your loved ones.”
— Bishop Donald Kettler
