Times for Monastery Holy Week Services

Happy St. Joseph Day! Well...almost. We will have First Vespers of this great solemnity in one hour. Today we are finishing a solemn 9 days of prayer in honor of St. Joseph and tomorrow will be celebrated with great solemnity in our community since our monastery is named after St. Joseph. This is our "community feast day"!  And this year it is extra special with the Inaugural Mass of Pope Francis. You can be sure we will be watching this...although NOT "live" as most, if not all of us Sisters will be asleep when the Mass begins at 9:30 Rome time (3:30 central time?) Back to this blog post topic!  This year we will have the wonderful presence of a Passionist priest to lead our Holy Week services.
