NU Life Wednesday Nights

Senior Send-Off
Oh no...not again!

       Can't take this anymore! Our seniors are leaving and here we are grieving. It's so hard believing, but our minds aren't deceiving that this week we're receiving that sad song farewell. Aw heck. Don't spell it goodbye and we're sure you know why, that although time may fly it's just chronos, not kairos, which every girl and guy knows means they're not departing, their new lives are starting! So come to a tribute and join to distribute some honors and thanks and some giant love-tanks.

Wednesday, April 19th,
7:30 pm at the Catholic Center

HOLY WEEK 2017
[printable schedule here]

Holy Thursday - Mass of the Lord's Supper
April 13th, 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 14th, 3 pm Krentzman Quad, 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 14th, 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 15th, 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 16th, 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.

 

To all our “Graduates-Soon-To-Be” there will be a special Mass on Thursday, May 4th at 4 pm at the Fenway Center. Following the Mass there will be a light reception (and an opportunity to immortalize yourself by stapling your ID card to our wall!). Dress nicely but not formal (no ties necessary). Celebrate your accomplishments with your family and friends by taking part in this expression of thanksgiving to the Lord. Please let us know (roughly) how many you're bringing: email Brother Sam or look for our Facebook event - coming soon!

GRADUATES MASS & RECEPTION, 2:30 pm Thursday May 4th
