Passion Sunday

... but Jesus hid Himself, and went out of the temple.

From this Sunday until Easter Sunday there are no prayers at the foot of the altar as the Church continues to prune the liturgy, with veiled statues until the great feast itself. The Gloria Patri is also omitted after the Introit and lavabo until Easter.
As Passiontide begins there are two Masses in the EF on Sunday:

11.00 a.m. Sacred Heart, Broughton Hall, Skipton. Sung.
12.30 p.m. St. Joseph's, Pakington Street, Bradford. 

Next Sunday is the start of Holy Week when again we shall be having the Sacred Triduum. I am so grateful that Fr. Kravos has put the Notre Dame chapel at our disposal again for this purpose. The Holy Week schedule (subject to additions marked with asterisks) is as follows: 

VENUE    Notre Dame Chapel, Leeds University Catholic Chaplaincy, St. Mark's Avenue, Leeds.  
Holy Thursday  Mass of the Lord's Supper,  7.30 p.m. with adoration at the altar of repose until 9.00p.m.
Good Friday  Liturgy of the Passion and death of our Lord,   3.00 p.m. 
Holy Saturday  Easter Vigil  3.00 p.m. Missa Cantata.
