NU Life
NU Life Wednesday Nights

Penance Service this Week. Then...
Summer NU Life Starts May 14th
Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow. While Parking, in Boston, is Just Sorrow.

        Regretfully we inform you that NU Life has ended for the semester. President Kurt will resume his quest to become the first Mainer to find an apparition of the Blessed Mother in pine sap, which will involve a lot of walking through the woods. VP Dan will row the Columbia River in a floating refrigerator (plenty of snacks, and kept cool, eh?). Treasurer Ashley will sing the song of her people which, in San Diego, involves cocoa butter and many hours on the beach. Secretary Liam plans to visit all the Shaws supermarkets in Massachusetts looking for the perfect market-prepared sushi experience. And Historian Megan will devote herself to solving the great question plaguing this generation: why are there still Yankees fans?

No NU Life but we are happy to host a team of priests to hear confession as we prepare for the holiest days of the church year.

Holy Thursday
Mass of the Lord's Supper

April 17th, 7 pm Fenway Center, followed by the visitation Pilgrimage to local churches.

Description: We celebrate the last supper and commemorate the night Jesus established the priesthood and instituted the Holy Eucharist. This liturgy features the washing of the feet of 12 student leaders and concludes with a Eucharistic procession to the Catholic Center where adoration will continue. Afterwards, we make a pilgrimage to the Mission Church visiting other Eucharistic chapels and sites along the way.

Good Friday
Stations of the Cross,
April 18th, 3 pm Centennial Common, NU Campus (gather at cross)

Description: The Stations of the Cross are a traditional series of prayers that move through 14 stages of Christ's passion from his condemnation to his burial. The service lasts about a half hour and will be open-air. We welcome anyone who wishes to prayerfully remember the crucifixion of Jesus to attend.

Good Friday Passion Service
April 18th, 6 pm Fenway Center

Description: The liturgy for Good Friday is not a mass but does include the distribution of communion. The priests enter in silence and lay prostrate before the altar. The readings recall the Lord's passion and death. The congregation is invited to kiss the cross of Christ, or offer some other sign of respect to the crucifix. Prayers for the whole Church as well as all peoples are offered. The service ends in silence.

Easter Vigil Mass
Saturday, April 19th, 8:30 pm Fenway Center (gather outside)

Description: The Vigil begins the Church's annual celebration of Easter. A fire is kindled outside the sanctuary and priests light the Christ candle to start the celebration. Congregants process into the worship space with candles and the Exultet is sung. Darkness yields to light as the readings describe God's unfolding plan of salvation. The liturgy features the return of the Gloria, the baptism of our catechumen, and a joyful celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Join us after for refreshments at the Catholic Center!

Easter Sunday Mass,
April 20th, 12:30 pm Fenway Center

Description: Wear your Easter best and remember the victory of Jesus Christ over sin and death. This liturgy is a vibrant celebration with singing, bells and lots to smile about. We welcome candidates into full communion and confirm Catholics who have been preparing all year for this big day.

We came to laugh, to play and dance the night away! If you missed it, rather than curse the darkness of your misfortune, light a candle of hope by checking out the pictures on Facebook. Many thanks to all who made this wonderful night a first for a new CC tradition.
