On this day, the Church celebrates Christ’s entrance into Jerusalem to accomplish the Paschal Mystery of his death and resurrection. 

DAILY MASS SCHEDULE:  There will be no daily Masses this week.  Please see Holy Week Schedule below.



HOLY WEEK SCHEDULE:  St. Andrew:  Holy Thursday, April 18, 7:00 p.m.; Good Friday, April 19, 7:00 p.m.; Easter Vigil, April 20, 7:30 p.m.; Easter Sunday, 9:00 a.m.  Sacred Heart:  Holy Thursday, April 18, 5:00 p.m.; Good Friday, April 19, 5:00 p.m.; Easter Sunday, April 21, 11:30 a.m. English and 2:00 p.m. Spanish.

Fr. Fred will be traveling to Charlotte this Tuesday, April 16, to celebrate the Chrism Mass with the Bishop and other priests in the Diocese.  This Mass is a celebration of the institution of the priesthood with Jesus' words at the Last Supper, "Do this in memory of me," and during the Mass, priests/ministers and deacons also reaffirm their ministry by renewing the promises made at their ordination.

The Parish Office will be closed Holy Thursday and Good Friday, April 18 and 19.

Following today’s Mass, we need volunteers to help us prepare our church for Holy Week.  This includes moving statutes, votive candle stands, and draping the crucifix, among other things.

After many, many months of study, Aubrey Stille, Trey Penland, Diego Ortiz, and Francisco Macias, will be entering in to Full Communion with the Church at this year’s Easter Vigil, next Saturday, April 20, 7:30 p.m. at St. Andrew.  Please pray for all of them and for all of those throughout the world who are moving forward to receive for the first time the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Located on the table in the narthex are sign-up sheets for First Reconciliation/First Communion and Confirmation classes.  Confirmation classes will begin on Monday, September 9, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and First Reconciliation/First Communion classes on Wednesday, September 11, 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.  The deadline for registering is Sunday, April 28.


Stewardship opens an avenue of thought that allows us to give without always questioning what we will get in return.
