Seeing Holy Week from a different perspective

No matter how much you love your home parish, there’s something amazing about attending a Holy Week liturgy at the Cathedral!  Besides the added beauty of the building and the music, you’ll get a greater sense of belonging to the Universal Church.  Below is the schedule for the diocese of St. Paul/Minneapolis.  I strongly encourage your family to add one of these liturgies to your Holy Week schedule!

Palm Sunday Masses & Vespers, April 1

Palm Sunday Masses are at 8 & 10 a.m., 12 noon, and 5 p.m. The vigil Mass is at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 31. Solemn Vespers (Evening Prayer) will be prayed at 4 p.m. on Palm Sunday with the Gregorian Singers.
