Holy Week Schedule 2021

The holiest week of the year is soon at hand. As only one solemn liturgy is permitted each day for the Triduum and as we have grown in size we had to acquire new venues for this year, and are very grateful to St. William's Catholic Church and Royal Palm Academy for hosting us to make the Triduum possible for all, for which no reservation will be necessary. As the ceremonies will be solemn, both priests and seminarian will perform the role of priest, deacon and subdeacon, and therefore there will not be confessions during the solemn liturgies. Please take advantage of Mon-Wed for confessions.
