Celebrating the Gift of God’s Love

Palm Sunday, Holy Week & Easter...and COVID-19

We are, of course, very uncertain of the shape our Holy Week and Easter Liturgies will take in the coming days.  Be assured that St. Pascal's will offer access to these sacred liturgies whether we are able to gather together in person or gather together via Facebook or You Tube.

Blessings on all as we navigate through these extraordinary days toward healing, wholeness and the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

St. Pascal's Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday will be available on Facebook and YouTube!


Fr. John will celebrate and record Mass at St. Pascal's on Monday, April 6, Tuesday, April 7, and Wednesday, April 8. Those Masses will be uploaded to YouTube and Facebook as usual. 

Beginning on Holy Thursday, Fr. John will give a message and prayer to our St. Pascal parishioners.  Watch those on Facebook or YouTube. at 12:00 PM on Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Vigil.

Liturgies for Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Vigil will not be held here at St. Pascal Baylon and posted online. While we are are sad that these Holy Week liturgies cannot happen in our space, it is more important to keep our lectors, cantors and other participants safe.  We invite you to watch those three liturgies of Holy Week on the Archdiocesan website which is hosting a Virtual Holy Week Retreat.  See the link below.


Virtual Holy Week Retreat

  • Mass or prayer at 9:00 AM followed by directed Lectio Divina.
  • An evening session at 7:00 PM, consisting of conferences from Archbishop Bernard Hebda, Bishop Andrew Cozzens, Father Charles Lachowitzer and Father John Ubel.

All of the events will be live streamed or recorded and available on www.archspm.org/holyweek for all who would like to participate.
