Marriage: What’s Law Got To Do With It?

Marriage is the communion of the whole of life between one man and one woman; it is also a juridical institution that gives rise to certain rights and obligations of the spouses and of the ecclesial community.

100% of proceeds benefit LifeWay Network, a New York Metro area organization that joins in the global movement against human trafficking by providing safe housing for women who have been trafficked and offering education about trafficking to the general public.

Held in Wallace Hall, Caritas Concerts have the appeal of the less formal salon concerts of the 19th century. The evenings begin and end with wine, hors d’oeuvres, and a chance to mingle with the performers, and intimate seating places the audience in close proximity to the music. As the name suggests, Caritas Concerts are benefits, with all proceeds directed toward charities that address social justice concerns.

All tickets for Caritas Concerts: $50

Holy Thursday
Time: Thursday, April 02 at 7:00 pm
Location: Church

Mass of the Lord’s Supper

Presider: Rev. Thomas Feely, S.J.

This Mass commemorates the Passover meal that Jesus shared with his apostles on the night before his death.  At that meal the Lord instituted the Eucharist for our continual nourishment and washed the feet of his disciples as a sign to us of the call to service and humility.


The church will be closed during the morning for set-up and rehearsal. During this time the Lady Chapel will remain open. The church will re-open from 2:30 PM – 5:00 PM.

The fonts will be emptied after the Holy Thursday liturgy and filled again at the end of the Easter Vigil Service. This is in preparation for the blessing of new water during the Easter Vigil.

Good Friday Evening
Time: Friday, April 03 at 7:00 pm
Location: Church

Celebration of the Lord’s Passion

Presider: Rev. Michael Hilbert, S.J.

The Church’s Liturgy for Good Friday is the starkest of all liturgies during the year.  It includes the chanting of the Passion of Our Lord according to John,  the Veneration of the Cross, and Holy Communion.

Easter Vigil
Time: Saturday, April 04 at 8:00 pm
Location: Church

Rev. George M. Witt, S.J., Presider

The Easter Vigil begins at 8:00 PM. The doors will open at 7:30 PM.

The Easter Vigil liturgy is the most beautiful liturgy in the Roman Catholic Church.

Celebrated on Holy Saturday after sunset, the Vigil Mass is regarded as the most important Mass of the liturgical year.  It is replete with ancient and dramatic features that are unique to this worship service.  Adults who have never been baptized are baptized at this liturgy.  Baptized Christians of other denominations are received into the Church through the sacraments of Confirmation and first Eucharist.  Baptized Roman Catholics who have never had religious instruction are confirmed and receive their first Eucharist. 

Because it is so rich with detail, the Vigil Mass usually lasts about three hours. 

Because the Vigil begins in complete darkness, no latecomers will be admitted into the Church until the end of the “Exultet.” Please be on time.
