WHAT DOES “TRIDUUM” MEAN? It comes from Latin roots that mean, essentially, “the three days” or “period of three days” (tri- = three, -dies = days). This is the liturgical season that follows Lent and precedes the Easter season. April 9-11, Mark your calendar now and plan to participate.





There will be no public Masses at St. Andrew during Holy Week in 2020, due to the coronavirus quarantine. Below are several resources you can use to celebrate at home.
