Palm Sunday: Setting Captives Free
Below is a meditation and reflection to help you on your Lenten journey and to draw closer to Jesus.
Prayer for this Week: Jesus, help me to trust that you will grant me true freedom.
Join us for the most important week of the year!
The Easter Triduum of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday are some of the most moving liturgies of our Church calendar. What better way to prepare for Easter than to walk with Jesus to the Cross this Holy Week.
Note: After the Easter Vigil Mass, there will be a reception in honor of those who have recently been received into the Church. If you are at the Easter Vigil Mass, please stop by to congratulate them!
It's Holy Week! Find out about our Masses and activities as we prepare for Easter on the 4/4/22 Weekly Update
Holy Week Confession Schedule
Prepare for Easter by participating in the healing sacrament of Confession. There are several options for confession during Holy Week.
For years, the LaPorte Catholic Youth Ministry has presented a Stations of the Cross to our community. This year, they have prepared a slideshow with music, images, and reflections. Take time on Good Friday to reflect and meditate on Christ's sacrifice for you.
Please support our youth by watching their work and keeping them in your prayers.
Today is Palm Sunday. This is the day that we enter into Holy Week: the week when we enter Jerusalem with Christ, experience the Last Supper, go with Him to the garden to pray, and ultimately walk with Him to Calvary. It is an emotional and beautiful week that demonstrates God's wonderful love for us.
We were created by God out of love, FOR love. Even though we fell from grace and are sinners, He had a plan to redeem us, and it was a plan that He had from the very beginning. This plan is summed up as Salvation History and it plays out through the entire Bible. It is good to reflect on God's divine plan for our salvation, particularly during Holy Week. It helps us to understand that moment on the cross on Good Friday; it helps us to understand the glorious gift of Easter.
The following is a 20 minute video slideshow using music, art and Scripture to take you on a journey through Salvation History. From the creation and fall, through the Old Testament prophets, to the death and resurrection of Jesus, it is a beautiful reflection on God's divine plan for us. So, during this most Holy of weeks, take a moment to sit back and reflect on God's love and His plan for us.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
