Holy Week and the Stations of the Cross

The Church Liturgical Season we have just journeyed through is the Holy Season of Lent, the time of preparation for Easter. Easter is this coming Sunday April 1st.  However, before we can celebrate Easter and Jesus’ Resurrection, we must first solemnly commemorate His Passion and Death on the cross.  Without the cross there can be no resurrection!

Please join St. Matthew School’s staff and students for our solemn commemoration of Jesus passion and death, this coming Thursday–Holy Thursday–March 29th, at 1:15 p.m.  Our Grade Eight class will present a very beautiful and moving rendition of the passion of Our Lord.

Our Lenten journey comes to its high point in Holy Week, when we commemorate Jesus’ suffering and death through our participation with our family and Christian community in the Holy Week liturgies.  We encourage our St. Matthew families to attend the liturgies of Holy Week–Holy Thursday and Good Friday. The solemnity of these liturgies helps to prepare us for our rejoicing in Jesus’ Resurrection from the dead on Easter Sunday morning, which we celebrate at either the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday night, or at Easter Sunday Mass on Easter morning, April 1st.

He is risen, Alleluia!

Easter blessings to all St. Matthew families!
