EASTER TRIDUUM – The Three Great Days.
For three full days, from Holy Thursday evening to Easter Sunday night, the Church celebrates the Paschal

Mystery of Jesus Christ. This is his work of saving us by his dying and rising; one great act of God’s love and

mercy for us.

HOLY THURSDAY
Evening Mass: We remember the Passover Feast of the Jewish people and the Last Supper of Jesus with

his disciples when we celebrate the Eucharist this evening. Before he offers himself on the cross, Jesus takes bread and says, “This is my body”. He takes a cup of wine and says “This is my blood of the new covenant…..shed to save all sinners. Do this in memory of me”.

GOOD FRIDAY
Paschal Fast: This morning we begin our two-day fast in preparation for the Easter Vigil. We eat less food

than normal and cut out entertainments. Good Friday is a universal day of fasting and abstaining from meat. Liturgy: At 3:00 o’clock, the time of our Lord’s death on the cross, we come together in church to remember what Jesus has done for us. In the service of the Word, we listen to the solemn proclamation of Jesus’ passion according to John, then offer prayer for the world and for God’s people, the Church.

We venerate the cross, and eat the life-giving Body of the Lord in communion.

HOLY SATURDAY

On this day, the body of Jesus lay in the guarded tomb and the frightened disciples hid behind locked doors. In the Church, Holy Saturday is a quiet day, the great Sabbath rest.

EASTER
Easter Vigil: This service is the most important celebration of the Church year. It takes place during the dark

hours of the night. It has four distinct stages:

1) The Service of Light.
2) Liturgy of the Word.
3) Baptism and Confirmation, baptismal vows.
4) Eucharist.
Easter Day: The joyful celebration of our Lord’s Resurrection continues. Alleluia! Meaning “Praise to

God!” is our shout of joy. The Easter Season continues until Pentecost, 50 days after Easter.

CLERGY and RELIGIOUS APPRECIATION DINNER: The Knights of Columbus will be sponsoring an appreciation dinner for the Clergy and Religious of our area on Monday, April 16 at St. Peter’s Church Hall. Cocktails: 6 pm, Dinner: 7 pm. All parishioners are welcome. The 4 course dinner is $25 per person. Contact Rod Giddens at 604-525-3030 for tickets.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:
As we live this holy season of Lent, I appeal to you to take part in this year’s Share Lent

Campaign. This campaign gives each of us the opportunity to hear the cry of the poor, the hungry, the marginalized and those suffering the effects of war, violence and natural disasters throughout the world.

This year Share Lent is focussing on supporting small-scale farmers in the world’s poorest regions. Your generosity will be a blessing to the families and to the millions who depend on them for their daily bread.

I invite you to be generous in the Share Lent Collection taken on “Solidarity Sunday,” The Fifth Sunday of Lent, 25th March 2012. The proceeds of your almsgiving will assist development projects in making lasting improvements in the lives of our brothers and sisters most in need. The Lord will surely reward your Lenten sacrificial offering.

Be assured of my prayers for you and your families during this holy season of renewal and conversion of heart. With my blessing, I remain

Sincerely yours in Christ, J. Michael Miller, CSB

Archbishop of Vancouver
