Note: This Holy Week Program has three Sections

 

1. Services live-streamed from St. Michael's Cathedral

2. Official and devotional prayers I do in private for the intentions of the parishioners and for the world. To be part of it, please keep in heart those hours from your home, work or wherever you are.

3. Zoom Prayer Meeting: please join the meeting using zoom link you find in our group whatsapp, email, website or facebook.

 

Make your home a small church, a chapel:

  • Set up a prayer corner in your house; a small table with a white cloth on it, place cross, 2 candles in both sides, Bible, and prayer books, put a mat or sheet in front of it, place a picture of Christ if you have behind the table.
  • Keep this set up there for the whole Holy Week.
  • Try to do all hours of prayer, if possible, with you family, using Prayer book of hours. If you do not have it, please find electronic copy. 
  • Please attend live Mass with proper Mass attire. At the time of communion, you may receive communion with an intense desire by reciting the prayer of spiritual communion. Recorded masses are only for devotional purposes, not for the actual attendance.
