This afternoon at 4:00 p.m., our MCs came to the church to rehearse for the Mass of the Lord’s Supper which will be celebrated tomorrow evening at 7:00 p.m. That practice went for about an hour and a half.
At 7:00 p.m., eleven of us priests heard confessions at our parish’s penance service. We heard solid for an hour and twenty minutes, about 188 confessions in all.
Now? I’m fixing to get to bed and try to get some sleep. Tomorrow will be a busy day as we begin the Triduum. For those of you who may be interested, the following are Masses or services that will take place the next few days as we begin our Easter celebrations:
