Father Fred Link, O.F.M.

The Solemn Triduum, the heart and climax of our liturgical year as Catholic Christians, begins at 7pm on Holy Thursday and concludes at the end of the Solemn Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday night. There is a special insert in this week's bulletin explaining each service.

 

We will have a final opportunity for Confessions this coming Tuesday evening, March 31. Fr. Jim will be in the Reconciliation Room between 5pm and 6pm. And I will be there between 6pm and 7pm. There are no confessions next Saturday (Holy Saturday).

 

With Holy Week, we are beginning the holiest time of the year in our Catholic Church. This is true for all Christian churches. At the heart of every Mass, the priest announces: "The Mystery of Faith." What we are celebrating during the solemn Triduum is exactly that: Christ has died! Christ is risen! Christ will come again! May this be a time of great blessing for each St. Clement family and parishioner!

Next Monday, I and a number of friars will be walking in the Opening Day Parade. Our province has a "float." If you're along the way, give me a shout out and I'll wave back. If we have candy to throw, you just might get some. Go Reds!

 

And please make sure to reserve Saturday, April 18, on your calendar for our Annual SUPER BINGO! Plans are to make this year's bigger and better than ever. All proceeds benefit St. Clement School!

 

Blessed Easter and Happy Spring to one and all!
