Happy Easter Monday! Many thanks to all who participated in our Holy Week and Easter services, and particular thanks to those who worked behind the scenes in planning and preparing these beautiful ceremonies. Your hard work and dedication is appreciated by the entire parish community.

Over the next few days, we will be sharing some video clips from these ceremonies. Today's clip features some highlights from Tenebrae, which took place on Wednesday evening of Holy Week. After the strepitus, or "great noise", which symbolizes the earthquake at the moment of Christ's death on the cross, you will see that the return of the candle to the Sanctuary was captured by the camera with an interesting (and unintended) effect.

(Interesting Trivia: Our parish's Tenebrae Hearse was created by one of our parishioners over thirty years ago. His youngest daughter, now a member of our Latin Mass choir, sang the haunting descant in Gregorio Allegri's Miserere during this year's ceremony.)
