Easter

May you all have a blessed Easter Triduum.  Below is a nice summary of the Triduum from the Archdiocese of Toronto.

Triduum

 

From John McFarland

On Wednesday, Sr. Solanus directed professional development for our faculty. 

Here is a link to the Divine Mercy Novena that Sr. Solanus mentioned. Each day of the novena, you pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet and a different prayer and intention for the day.  Below I included a link to all of that in a PDF booklet, which also includes how to pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet and those prayers. Also, there is a link to a helpful website with a lot of good information on the Divine Mercy Chaplet, the Novena, the history, and other helpful resources. 

Praying that each of you has a blessed Triduum and glorious Easter. 

Booklet Form with everything you need to pray the Novena, which again starts on Good Friday:
