SPECIAL - Apr. 4 Monday Mass 10:00 am

The monks will have morning prayers at 7:30 am -- Everyone is invited to these public prayers of the Church.  Mass is at 10:00 am (like on Sunday).  

Monday April 4 is the celebration of the Annunciation of the Lord -- "the angel Gabriel's appearance to the Virgin Mary (Luke 1:26-38), his announcement that the Blessed Virgin had been chosen to be the Mother of Our Lord, and Mary's humble obedience, 'May it be done to me according to your word.'"

This year in a rare occurrence that happens only about twice every century, the Annunciation and Good Friday fell on the same day – March 25, 2016.  In those instances, the Church moves the celebration usually to April 4.  

The ancient tradition of the Church was that the actual date of the Crucifixion was March 25, the same day as the Annunciation – forever linking these two events when God became man. An alpha and omega of Jesus' time on earth in the flesh.


2005 was the last time the Annunciation and Good Friday occurred on the same day.  The next will be 2157. 

Come to Mass April 4 and receive Jesus, BodyBloodSoul and Divinity.
