Easter Sunday Mass times throughout diocese

Written by

Holy Week starts April 10
What is the Triduum?

During Holy Week, which beings on Palm Sunday (April 10), Lent comes to an end before the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, which is the beginning of the Easter Triduum. The three chronological days are liturgically one day and from what the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops call “the summit of the Liturgical Year.”

These three days witness the most exalted liturgical celebrations of the year and help us to remember Christ’s Paschal Mystery: His passion, death, and Resurrection. 

The liturgical services that take place during the Triduum are: the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday (April 14), the Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion on Good Friday (April 15), and the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord (Easter Vigil) on Holy Saturday (April 15). On Easter Sunday (April 16), the Church continues to celebrate the Resurrection and triumph of the Lord. 

The Triduum is concluded liturgically with Evening prayer in the late afternoon or early evening on Easter Sunday. This is the beginning of the Easter season, which is the 50 days from Easter Sunday until Pentecost.
