EASTER TRIDUUM – The Three Great Days.
For three 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 all people.

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”.

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 receive the Body and Blood of the Lord in Communion.


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

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 parts:

1) The Service of Light.
2) Liturgy of the Word. Readings from Creation to the Resurrection.
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.
