The Holy Mass and other events can be attended only by registering in advance through the parish website. It is not possible to attend the Mass without a reservation. If all places are booked, a parishioner can ask a priest to receive the Communion outside the Mass. The use of a face mask and hand sanitizer is mandatory. It is obligatory to maintain the social distancing also during the Communion.

The Holy Week begins today. During the Holy Week we celebrate the mysteries of our Lord’s passion, death and resurrection, the central events of our salvation. Let us attend these celebrations with special devotion:

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 at 6 pm. There will be a adoration after the Mass till 10 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 traditional blessing of the Easter food at 11 am, 11.30, 12.00 and 12.30. A registration is obligatory for all blessings of food. The solemn Easter Vigil at 9.30 pm.

on the Easter Sunday the bishop’s solemn Mass in Finnish at 10 am, Mass in Finnish with readings in Swedish at 11.30, Mass in English at 1 pm, Mass in Polish at 4 pm and Mass in English at 6 pm.

Many thanks to those who regularly support our parish financially and with voluntary work.

May God bless you during the Holy Week.
