The community Mass is celebrated at 11:00 AM, Fr. James preaching. The feast, the calendar date of which fell on Good Friday, is transferred from 25 March this year to Monday, 4 April after the conclusion of the Easter Octave. The Easter Octave extends the celebration of Easter to eight days and is the Feast of Feasts superseding every other liturgical celebration.
It is a non-work day for the monks and we follow the Sunday schedule. Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament will follow Vespers on Monday.
