23.  St. Benedict Center, Still River, MA

SUNDAY, APRIL 13TH – PALM SUNDAY celebrates the triumphant entry of our Divine Redeemer into Jerusalem, five days before His crucifixion. In imitation of those who strewed olive and palm branches on the road before Christ as He rode, we are given blessed palms to hold during the procession and the reading of the Passion and Last Gospel. These should be displayed in the home throughout the year as sacramentals. Distribution of palms and procession during the 9:15 a.m. Mass. (Note: old palms should be burnt.) Sign up for your Holy Thursday watch in the vestibule.
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16TH – Saint Benedict Joseph Labre. Spy Wednesday.

THURSDAY, APRIL 17TH – HOLY THURSDAY commemorates the Last Supper of Our Redeemer, with the institution of the Holy Eucharist. After the Mass of Maundy Thursday, the bells cease to ring till the “Gloria in Excelsis,” at the Mass for Easter. This is done as a  sign of mourning, and in imitation of the silence and grief of the Apostles at the sufferings and death of Christ. All the altars are stripped, and the Blessed Sacrament is placed on the Altar of Repose, in remembrance of the desolation and loneliness of Christ on that awful night. High Mass at 7:30 p.m. followed by the Procession of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Which will be placed at the Altar of Repose.
Watch and Pray… Strict Silence on the Monastery Grounds
from after Holy Thursday Mass until after Mass on Good Friday.
Anyone who would like his intentions represented on the altar may bring a single rose 
and place it there during the watch.

FRIDAY, APRIL 18TH – GOOD FRIDAY. “It is finished.” This day should be held in sacred silence as much as possible, (especially from 12 noon to 3:00) as we re-live, with all our attention and devotion, the precious death of our Divine Redeemer. The Church in her whole office expresses the deepest mourning and compunction. As sinners, we should let the sword of sorrow and contrition pierce our hearts as we relive the tremendous agonies suffered by Christ for us during the great tragedy of the first Good Friday. Reading of the Passion, Adoration of the Holy Cross and the Mass of the Presanctified, 3 p.m.

SATURDAY, APRIL 19TH – HOLY SATURDAY commemorates Christ’s rest in the tomb. No services are held in the church all through the daylight hours. It is only at night that the Easter Vigil starts with the blessing of the new fire and water and the Feast’s deeply impressive ceremonies. It is a night of joyful expectation, until finally the Alleluia proclaims the exultant message of the Resurrection and leads us to the glorious celebration of Easter in the Holy Sacrifice. No morning Mass … Easter Vigil Mass at 8:30 p.m.

SUNDAY, APRIL 20TH – EASTER SUNDAY. Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! “On this day salvation is given to the world both visible and invisible. Christ is risen from the dead; arise ye with Him! Christ has resumed His Body; return to the state of happiness which you had forfeited. Christ has left the grave; break the bonds of your sins. The gates of Hell are broken down; death is vanquished; the old Adam is destroyed, and the new Adam formed; be ye made a new creature in Christ!” (Saint Gregory Nazianzen)  Regular Sunday Mass times. (7:30, 9:15 & 11:00 a.m.)

MONDAY, APRIL 21ST – EASTER MONDAY. Saint Anselm. The celebration of the great feast of the Resurrection traditionally extends to the next day which was often a day of games and fun.
