Good Friday is a day when Christians around the world solemnly commemorate the day when Jesus suffered and died on the cross. Catholics traditionally mark the day with fasting, penance, and reflection on Jesus’ loving sacrifice. This opportunity to pray together during the coronavirus pandemic offers a special moment of unity for the faithful during a time when communities throughout the United States and worldwide are physically unable to congregate for Holy Week and Easter because of COVID-19.

Along with celebrating Mass online, Catholics can celebrate daily through the following ways and sharing photos and post with the hashtag #LACatholicsEnterIn (#CatólicosLAEntran) during Holy Week and #LACatholicsBelieve (#CatólicosLACreen) on Easter:

  • Holy Thursday: Set your family dinner table
  • Good Friday: Venerate a cross
  • Holy Saturday: (Holy) #SilentSaturday, Light a candle and spend time in silence
  • Easter: Renew your baptismal promises

To download the prayer visit: Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus or Letanía del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús, and to share Archbishop’s Gomez message visit: National Prayer on Good Friday.

Angelus News explains the meaning of the Litany and shares an video invitation to the faithful at this LINK.

Confessions:

Latest update from the Archbishop of Los Angeles:

The hearing of confession will be suspended for the time being. This is to stop the passing on of the COVID-19 virus to one another.

We ask for your understanding on the matter.

 

NO CONFESSION UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Adoration:

We have decided to close the adoration chapel for the duration of the crisis. The space is limited and we cannot control the people who come in and out of the adoration chapel. We hope that you understand that we have the good of each one in mind.
