Holy Week 2020

THE DIOCESE OF BROOKLYN CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

As a follow-up to the directive to suspend all Public Masses until further notice, the Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn, has issued a number of additional guidelines, governing the practice of the faith as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak, to all parishes throughout Brooklyn and Queens.

To comply with the government recommendation to avoid
gatherings of 10 or more people, the following has been
implemented in the Diocese of Brooklyn effective immediately:

PALM SUNDAY AND HOLY WEEK SERVICES

There will be no Masses open to the public on

Palm Sunday or Easter Sunday

GIVEN THAT NEW YORK IS THE EPICENTER OF THIS CRISIS

CHURCHES WILL REMAIN CLOSED.  

 

 MINDFUL OF EVERYONE’S HEALTH, PALMS WILL NOT BE DISTRIBUTED TO THE FAITHFUL AT THIS TIME, THEY WILL NOT BE LEFT OUTSIDE OF CHURCH BUT WILL BE BLESSED AND DISTRIBUTED  AT A LATER DATE USING THE

BLESSING OUTSIDE OF MASS, COMMUNICATED BY

 BISHOP DIMARZIO.

  • Reconciliation Monday, a special time devoted to
    confession at the start of Holy Week, has been
    cancelled.  However, Priests will be available for individual confessions throughout the remainder of the Lenten
    season and during this period of crisis.

The Mass of the Lord’s Supper (Holy Thursday), the Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion (Good Friday) the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday, will not be celebrated publicly. A broadcast schedule of the services with no congregation, to air on NET-TV, the cable channel of the Diocese of Brooklyn, will be announced at a later date.

“In the days and weeks ahead, let us ask God to watch over the people of our Diocese and all of His people; those who are sick, those who will fall ill, and those who are caring for them,” said
Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio.

At all times, but especially now, the safety and well-being of our faith community is our primary concern. The Diocese of Brooklyn will continue to deliver important information in a timely manner.

Palm Sunday 2018

Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter that begins the Holy Week. It is the day that we remember and celebrate the day Jesus entered into Jerusalem as Savior and King. As Jesus rode a donkey into the town of Jerusalem a large crowd gathered and laid palm branches and their cloaks across the road, giving Jesus royal treatment. The hundreds of people shouted “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!”

The Seder Supper 2018

The Seder is a feast that includes reading, drinking wine, telling stories, eating special foods, singing, and other Passover traditions.

As per Biblical command, it is held after nightfall on the first night of Passover (and the second night if you live outside of Israel), the anniversary of our nation’s miraculous exodus from Egyptian slavery more than 3,000 years ago. This year’s Seder  was celebrated on March 17th, 2018 at St Clare Parish.

Shroud Of Turin presentation.

The Shroud Of Turin presentation had been a spiritually filled moment that gives   reflective  and meditative  experience for the participants. The shroud was portrayed as a pictorial representation of the  death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, it was used as a tool to prepare the  parishioners spiritually for Lenten season.
