As the 3 Churches Triduum services are live streamed only this year, the Liturgy Group considered that it would enable parishioners to participate more fully in the services if a service sheet, which included the words of hymns to be sung, was produced for each of the services of the Triduum.
You can download the service sheets for Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and the Easter Vigil below:
After the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Maundy Thursday (8pm), the streaming camera will remain on for virtual watching until 10.30pm.
For the Good Friday liturgy you are asked to have a crucifix near at hand and also, if you are able, to send a prayer of intercession to Fr Matthew (email@example.com) before the day. These prayers will be read out by the priests during the time of Veneration of the Cross.
For the Easter Vigil you are asked to have a bowl of water and a candle to hand.
Please join in as much as you are able, then, although we are not together physically for Holy Week this year, we will be together in spirit.
Mass times will be as below, but to ensure social distancing and appropriate seating, all Easter Sunday Masses are by booking system only. To reserve a place at one of the Masses on that day please email, telephone, or text the appropriate booking co-ordinator listed below, stating the number and names of people in your family bubble group. Masses will resume their pre-lockdown pattern after Easter Sunday.
At Christ the King there will be two Masses at 9am and 10.30am on Easter Sunday, as there will be no Saturday evening Mass. In addition, when the number at CTK has reached capacity, further seats will be made available in the parish centre, where the Mass will be streamed on the screen.
