Holy Week 2017 at St. Vitus, Apr. 8th – 16th

Holy Week. One of the most sacred and spiritually up-lifting weeks in the liturgical and calendar year. The week begins with Palm Sunday, Apr. 9, 2017  Weekend Masses are Saturday, 4:00PM (4/8/17) and Sunday 9AM and 10:30AM (4/9/17).

“Tenebrae” service will be held on Apr. 12 (Wed.) beginning at 7:30PM.
