Maundy Thursday and Good Friday at St Mary’s in Norwalk, Connecticut

The Parish of St. Mary’s in Norwalk, Connecticut, celebrated the rites of the Triduum as it has for the past several years, in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. More than 400 people attended each of the first two rites, those of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, celebrated by the pastor, the Rev. Richard Cipolla. On Thursday, the congregation was led to the Altar of Repose in the lower church by the ministers, servers, schola cantorum and the St. Mary’s Youth Choir, all under the direction of David Hughes, organist and choirmaster.

Following the Mass and reposition of the Sacrament, the ministers and choir chanted Vespers, and the altars in the church were stripped.

On Friday, once again a packed church attended the rites marking Our Lord’s Passion and Death.
