PALM SUNDAY OF THE LORD’S PASSION – April 9, 2017

The Palm Sunday Mass schedule will remain as usual. On Sunday morning, we will gather at 8:30 am in the parking lot in Waterloo for the blessing of palms and the procession into church.  In case of inclement weather, we will meet in the gymnasium. At the Marshall Campus, we will gather in the parking lot at 10:30 am for the blessing of palms and the procession into church. In case of inclement weather, we will gather in the parish hall.

WHAT IS A TENEBRAE SERVICE?

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at 7:00 pm - Tenebrae Liturgy at the Waterloo Campus. The Tenebrae Liturgy is a combination of many ancient traditions of the Church. The word Tenebrae is Latin, and means “shadows.” The purpose of the liturgy is to recreate the emotional aspects of the Passion of our Lord - His betrayal, abandonment, and the agony of the events that would follow. Most unique in the liturgy is its abrupt ending – a sign that we are a people who wait in hope for Christ’s glorious resurrection and his triumph over sin and death. The liturgy begins with a candelabra placed upon the altar, and as the liturgy progresses, a candle is extinguished. At the end of the liturgy, the final candle is taken from the assembly’s view for a few moments. During this time, the assembly pounds on the pews to symbolize the closing of our Lord’s tomb. The candle is then returned, and the assembly departs in silence. It is a very powerful liturgy.

*********

 

The season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday.  Lenten regulations are as follows:

 

  1. 1.  Catholics who have celebrated their 14th birthday are to abstain from meat:

+On Ash Wednesday;

 +All Fridays in the season of Lent; and

+On Good Friday

 

2.  In addition to abstaining from meat, Catholics who have celebrated their 18th birthday, until they celebrate their 59th birthday, are to fast on:

 

                                    +Ash Wednesday; and

                                    +Good Friday.

 

Those who are bound to this regulation of fasting may eat only one full meal. Two smaller meals are permitted if necessary to maintain strength according to one’s needs, but eating solid foods between meals is not permitted.

3.  If a medical condition prevents you from fulfilling these obligations, you are not bound to observe them.
