Holy Week at Seton


This week marks one of the most sacred and holy weeks of our entire year. Holy Week offers us an incredible opportunity to celebrate, walk, and suffer with Christ so that we might rise with Him to be transformed through His glorious Resurrection. Consider clearing your schedule of unnecessary activities as best you can and completely focus your mind and heart intensely on Jesus. Each of the celebrations of the Triduum are very different – and awesome! It is technically ONE liturgy that lasts for THREE DAYS!


Morning Prayer of Triduum

Thursday, Friday & Saturday

8:30 a.m.


Holy Thursday

Lord’s Supper

7:00 p.m.


Sundown marks the end of Lent. Holy Thursday carefully celebrates the Last Supper (The Institution of the Eucharist). We are reminded of Jesus’ servant leadership through the washing of the feet. Our Mass ends with the Eucharistic (Christ) being taken to a special place of reposition, to remind us of Jesus’ agony in the Garden. The whole congregation is invited to Keep Watch in Adoration, 8:30 pm to midnight in Sippel Hall.

Good Friday

Passion of the Lord

1:30 p.m.


The continuation of Holy Thursday… The Gospel of John’s Passion is proclaimed, and we pause and pray special petitions to help us unite the suffering of the world with the sufferings of Christ. The Eucharist is brought into the Sanctuary, and in solemn reverence, we receive Christ. The service concludes with the veneration of the Cross, the very symbol of horrendous torture—for without the cross, there would be no Easter.

Holy Saturday

The Easter Vigil

8:00 p.m.


The Triduum continues as the amazing Easter Vigil begins totally in the dark, well after sundown. The Easter Fire is set ablaze and the Paschal candle is set aglow from the newly blessed fire, representing the light of Christ brought back into our lives. Then, in darkness, we hear the story of our salvation. In glorious fashion, just as if it were daybreak, the Sanctuary is suddenly basked in light. The Alleluia is sung and we welcome in new members of the Catholic Faith! The entire church now celebrates the Liturgy of the Eucharist and Christ is NOW RISEN!

Easter Sunday

Resurrection of the Lord

8:30 a.m. & 10:45 a.m.


On Easter Sunday morning, we continue to celebrate Christ’s triumph over death – As a matter of fact, it is so amazing to us, we celebrate the Easter season for 50 days! Each weekend Mass in the Easter Season, we will renew our Baptismal vows to remind us of our journey with Christ through the Sacrament of Baptism. This Season ends with Pentecost – (See Acts: 2)

25 things for your kids to spot during Palm Sunday and Triduum

Technically, Triduum spans three days—from the evening of Holy Thursday until the evening of Easter Sunday—but liturgically, it is “one day,” one long celebration of the Paschal Mystery. Triduum culminates in the Easter Vigil, which is the high point of the entire liturgical year. As with the Sunday liturgy, reviewing what will happen at the liturgy in advance is a good way to help your kids participate with understanding and reverence. Use the lists below to give your kids a heads up before going to church—and challenge them to notice each item during the service.
