​2020 Holy Week-Triduum Schedule

​​
A few days ago, Cardinal Robert Sarah, the Prefect from the Congregation of Divine Worship and the Disciple of the Sacraments, sent out a decree regarding the Easter Triduum, which partially read: “Concerning the date of Easter: Easter is the heart of the entire liturgical year and is not simply one feast among others. The Easter Triduum is celebrated over the arc of three days which is preceded by Lent and crowned by Pentecost and, therefore, cannot be transferred to another time (my emphasis).

This morning, Cardinal Collins sent a letter to all the parishes in our Archdiocese with the following instruction: “Due to the current pandemic, the liturgical celebration of the paschal mysteries of Holy Week, the Triduum and Easter will be celebrated without the physical participation of the faithful.” In conformity with his decree, I will be celebrating the liturgies of Holy Week at our parish assisted by Fr. Canisius Raj (and without the presence of the faithful).

In order to join my prayers with Cardinal Collins for the faithful of the archdiocese, and for the people of Our Lady of the Airways, I will be celebrating the liturgies at the same time that they are scheduled at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Michael.

The respective time of the liturgies in our parish will be as follow:

​​Our Lady of the Airways
Triduum Schedule​
Sunday, April 5th ~ 10:00 am, Palm Sunday

 Thursday, April 9th ~ 7:00 pm, Mass of the Lord’s Supper

 Friday, April 10th ~ 3:00 pm, Good Friday

 Saturday, April 11th ~ 7:00 pm, The Easter Vigil

 Sunday, April 12th, 10:00 am, Easter Sunday

Please note that all the liturgies at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Michael will be livestreamed so that the faithful may prayerfully unite themselves in their homes to the celebration of the liturgy. I encourage you to considering joining the Cardinal during these celebrations, if you are able to do so. If you cannot, consider uniting yourself in a spirit of prayer.

ALL the masses that I celebrated in our parish will be offered for “The Intention of The People of the Parish.”

Please be assured that you are continually in my daily prayers and in the Holy Masses that I celebrate each day. I long for that day when we will once again be able to celebrate at the altar of the Lord as one family.

Kindly forward this email to the members of your respective ministry and I encourage each of them to forward it to other members within our parish community, via email or word of mouth.

Yours in Christ,
Fr. Thomas Lim
