The Holy Week begins on the Palm Sunday. During the Holy Week we celebrate the mysteries of our Lord’s passion, death and resurrection, the central events of our salvation. During the Corona pandemic let us stay in unity with God and the Church through our prayers. Let us follow these celebrations with special devotion.

The celebrations of the Holy Week will be celebrated without the participation of the faithful. We can follow the events of the Holy Week on the Internet. There is a link to the live stream on the website of our parish: pyhamaria.fi

The schedule for the Holy Week:

  • On the Holy Thursday the solemn Eucharist to commemorate the Last Supper of the Lord, the sacrament of Eucharist and priesthood. This is a feast of all priests. Holy Mass in Finnish at 6 pm.
  • Good Friday – the celebration of Jesus’ passion and death at 3 pm. Good Friday is a day of fast and abstinence. Catholics between the ages of 18 until 60 are obliged to fast. In addition, all Catholics 14 years old and older must abstain from meat. Fasting means partaking of only one full meal and two small meals.
  • on the Holy Saturday the solemn Easter Vigil at 9.30

The Diocese of Helsinki has decided to apply the following rules because of the Corona virus epidemic:

  • Those visiting churches or parishes must avoid close contacts and follow attentively the general guidelines published by the authorities.
  • All parish activities except celebrations of the Holy Mass are cancelled. These cancellations include club meetings, church coffees etc. In some special circumstances the parish priest may allow some small gatherings, for example baptisms and funerals. Individual meetings can occur, as long as the general guidelines are followed.
  • The faithful are asked to avoid receiving Holy Communion on the tongue, and the Blood of Christ will not be distributed to them. If one, because of one’s conscious conviction absolutely wants to receive the Holy Host on the tongue, one must be certain that the priest is in no danger of touching the communicant.
  • Those of the faithful, for whom the virus poses great risk, and for those who have been placed or advised to stay in quarantine by the civil authorities, as well as their family members, are asked to stay at home; they are freed from the Sunday obligation. Those of the faithful, who have even slight symptoms of flu or who are greatly afraid of being contaminated in the Mass, are asked to stay at home as well; they, too, are freed from the Sunday obligation.
  • All those who cannot come to Mass on Sunday, are encouraged to follow life streams from our parishes or elsewhere or at least read the mass readings. They and all the faithful are encouraged also to make use of the worthy practice of Spiritual Communion.
  • Priests and other employees of the Diocese are asked to avoid traveling abroad
