Holy Thursday: On Holy Thursday, the Catholic Church commemorates the Last Supper of Christ, the Savior. This is the meal at which Jesus instituted the Eucharist, the Mass, and the priesthood.
At Christ the King, we have the Mass of the Lord’s Supper at 7:00pm followed by a procession to the chapel with adoration until midnight.
Good Friday: On this day Christians commemorate the passion, or suffering and death of Jesus Christ on the cross.
At Christ the King, we have Stations of the Cross at 12:00pm, the Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion at 3:00pm, and the Tenebrae service at 7:00pm.
Tenebrae (meaning ‘darkness’ or ‘shadows’) is the mourning prayer of the church on Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. It involves extinguishing candles one by one as Christ goes through his passion.
The Tenebrae service at Christ the King is a powerful experience. One can enter into the death of Jesus through the sounds, lighting, and prayer, working together to create a visual and spiritual experience.
Easter Vigil: The Easter Vigil is the greatest liturgy of the entire year in the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church. It is referred to as the “mother of all vigils” which is quoting St. Augustine. The Easter Vigil is packed with breathtaking symbolism and meaning. The Baptismal water is blessed, those entering the Church make a profession of faith, renounce sin, and are baptized. Many of these adults have been preparing for this moment for a year or more!
Easter: Easter is the celebration of Christ’s resurrection from the dead. It is celebrated on Sunday, and marks the end of Holy Week, the end of Lent, the last day of the Easter Triduum. This is the beginning of the Easter season of the liturgical year! This is the day for rejoicing at Christ the King! Bring your friends and family to Mass, renew your baptismal promises, and bask in the glory of God’s love! The Church is filled with flowers and smiles, and so much joy fills the pews.
