Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As we enter the holiest time in the Church year, I wish to invite you to join your fellow Catholics in worship during the sacred Triduum. In a hectic and busy world, every day is a time for reflection and prayer in the mysterious and awe-inspiring love of God for each one of us.

These sacred days offer us the opportunity to walk the path with Our Lord as we celebrate and remember His final days with the apostles, His agonizing death and His glorious resurrection.

Our week will begin with the Mass of Chrism on Tuesday, April 15 at 6PM at the Guardian Angel Cathedral. The Mass of Chrism is the liturgy in which the holy oils which will be used during the coming year for the Sacraments of Baptism, Ordination, Anointing of the Sick and Confirmation will be blessed and distributed to the parishes, and at this liturgy our priests will renew their priestly vows and commitment for the Church. It is a beautiful liturgy rich in history and tradition. I hope you will be able to attend.

Triduum liturgies, which include Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday will be celebrated in our parishes.

Wherever we are on our journey of faith, this sacred time gives us the opportunity to grow closer to our Lord and our Church community. I invite you to join your Catholic family in these liturgies that are being offered so that on Easter Morning you may fully experience the joy of Christ’s death and resurrection.


May the joy and hope of the Risen Christ be with each of you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Reverend Joseph A. Pepe, D.D., J.C.D.
Bishop of Las Vegas
