The Easter Triduum: It
Will Fill Out Your Life

From Monsignor Diamond: "Lent ends on Spy Wednesday, April 1, and the Church enters its shortest season. The Easter Triduum begins on Holy Thursday (7 PM Mass commemorating the institution of the Eucharist); Good Friday (3 PM Service Celebrating the Passion and Death of Our Lord); Easter Vigil (7 to 9:30 PM, the grandest Mass of the year commemorating all of Salvation History and the Resurrection). If you have never taken part in the Easter Triduum you have no idea how it will fill out your life as a Catholic. Please come."

Multi-Faith Good Friday Service
Immaculate Conception will host the Jenkintown Area Multi-Faith Ministerium Good Friday Service on April 3 at noon. This is an opportunity for members of all churches in Jenkintown, Abington, Willow Grove, Glenside and Elkins Park to gather around the Cross on Good Friday. We hope to see many parishioners represent Immaculate Conception at this annual event.
Host Families Needed
Many visitors to the World Meeting of Families will travel long distances to Philadelphia in September. Because there aren't enough hotel rooms in the region, there is a need for furnished guestrooms, apartments or homes for the visitors in exchange for a nightly fee. Visit the meeting website (link below) for details.

Are You Called to Be a Deacon?
While all of the baptized are called to share in the mission of Jesus Christ according to the gifts of the Holy Spirit, those who are ordained also offer service in a way proper to the Sacrament of Holy Orders. A deacon’s ministry entails proclaiming, preaching and teaching God’s Word, assisting the bishop and priest at the Liturgy, assisting at funerals, ministering to the sick and dying, leading the community in prayer and in sacramental liturgies, baptizing, witnessing marriages, and exercising administrative leadership in the Church.

A permanent deacon, who may be married, is a member of the clergy and shares in the hierarchy of the Sacrament of Holy Orders. Through the Sacrament of Holy Orders, the deacon is configured to Christ the Servant. It is Christ the Servant who acts through the ministry of the deacon.

Learn more at the 2015 Permanent Diaconate Information Night Thursday, April 16 at 7 PM at Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary's Vianney Auditorium, 100 East Wynnewood RD, Wynnewood, PA 19096 Registration is required. To register or for more information, send an email to Laura Nimmons at lnimmons@archphila.org
