Holy Week in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd

from Fr. Kevin:

We will be trying a few changes for Holy Week this year. 

On Holy Tuesday, we will transfer the foot washing gospel and ceremony to the Community Eucharist at 5:30 PM, so that the entire GTS community, including our children, can experience that wonderful ceremony (note: if  you have shoes that slip on, they are a good idea). 

On Maundy Thursday at 9:50 AM, we will place our focus on the Last Supper, along with the stripping of the altar and the procession of the reserve sacrament to the altar of repose.  Read more...
