Holy Week Services at Canterbury

Meredith Berry-Toon

Canterbury will host Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter services for faculty, staff, students, and families.

The Evening Mass of the Lord's Supper will be held in the Chapel at 7 PM on Holy Thursday. The service will include the washing of the feet.  Good Friday Service of the Celebration of the Passion of the Lord will be held at 12 PM and will include the Adoration of the Holy Cross.

On Friday, the Canterbury community will embrace our value of Spirituality with quiet, technology-free hours for students of all faiths from 12-3 PM. During this time, students will have the option to be reflective in the library or attend a series of activities, including attend one of several trail walks or hikes in nearby Washington, CT, help stock the food bank at New Milford Social Services, participate in Stations of the Cross in the Chapel of Our Lady, or join the Ecumenical Prayer Walk along New Milford's Town Green. Additional options are available for all community members, a list of which can be found here.  

Easter Mass will be at 7 PM on Saturday evening.

All Services will be celebrated by Rev. Mark Connell and Deacon Frank Bice. Student Sacristans include Nicholas Buonaiuto ‘19, Sydney Desmarais ‘19, Nikki DeCola ‘19, Jessica Garcia ‘19, Gregory McKenna ‘19, Brendan Omana ‘19, Jacalyn Pugliese ‘19, Michaela Stowell ‘19, Eli Taylor ‘19, and Gianna Terracino ‘19.

Music accompaniment will be provided by Sarah and Dylan Armstrong.

We invite members of the extended Canterbury family to join us!
