Mass of the Lord's Supper
April 2nd, 7 pm Fenway Center, followed by the visitation Pilgrimage to local churches.
Description: We celebrate the last supper and commemorate the night Jesus established the priesthood and instituted the Holy Eucharist. This liturgy features the washing of the feet of 12 student leaders and concludes with a Eucharistic procession to the Catholic Center where adoration will continue. Afterwards, we make a pilgrimage to the Mission Church visiting other Eucharistic chapels and sites along the way.
Stations of the Cross,
April 3rd, 3 pm Centennial Common, NU Campus (gather at cross)
Description: The Stations of the Cross are a traditional series of prayers that move through 14 stages of Christ's passion from his condemnation to his burial. The service lasts about a half hour and will be open-air. We welcome anyone who wishes to prayerfully remember the crucifixion of Jesus to attend.
Good Friday Passion Service
April 3rd, 6 pm Fenway Center
Description: The liturgy for Good Friday is not a mass but does include the distribution of communion. The priests enter in silence and lay prostrate before the altar. The readings recall the Lord's passion and death. The congregation is invited to kiss the cross of Christ, or offer some other sign of respect to the crucifix. Prayers for the whole Church as well as all peoples are offered. The service ends in silence.
Easter Vigil Mass
Saturday, April 4th, 8:00 pm Fenway Center (gather outside)
Description: The Vigil begins the Church's annual celebration of Easter. A fire is kindled outside the sanctuary and priests light the Christ candle to start the celebration. Congregants process into the worship space with candles and the Exultet is sung. Darkness yields to light as the readings describe God's unfolding plan of salvation. The liturgy features the return of the Gloria, the baptism of our catechumen, and a joyful celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Join us after for refreshments at the Catholic Center!
Easter Sunday Mass,
April 5th, 12:30 pm Fenway Center
Description: Wear your Easter best and remember the victory of Jesus Christ over sin and death. This liturgy is a vibrant celebration with singing, bells and lots to smile about. We welcome candidates into full communion and confirm Catholics who have been preparing all year for this big day.
At other times, the Sacred Space and Reflection Room are open for your private prayer, contemplation, and meditation. For information on reserving the spaces, please visit http://www.northeastern.edu/spirituallife/facilities/index.html.
