Holy Week 2019 Photopost Request

As we do every year, we will have a whole series of photoposts of your Holy Week liturgies, with individual posts for Tenebrae, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday. As always, we are glad to receive images of the OF, EF, Eastern Rites, the Ordinariate Use, etc., including any part of the liturgy. Please send your photographs to, and remember to include the name and location of the church, along with any other information you think important.

Please read this! – Last year, the total number of photographs we published of the ceremonies from Palm Sunday to Easter was over 650, spread out over 15 posts. This is, of course, all to the good, but I would ask people to do a few things to make it easier for us to process the photos. The first is to size them down so that the smaller dimension is around 1500 pixels. The second is to send the pictures as zipped files, which are a lot easier to process, (not links, and not as photos attached to an email). The third is to not mix photos of one ceremony with those of another, and to put the name of the ceremony (“Tenebrae”, “Holy Thursday”, “Good Friday”, “Holy Saturday”, and “Easter Sunday”) as the subject of the email. Your help is very much appreciated.

Here are just a few highlights from last year’s photoposts.

The Blessed Sacrament arrives at the Sepulcher at Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini in Rome.
From the second Holy Thursday post: the Mandatum at the National Shrine of St Alphonsus Liguori in Baltimore, Maryland (FSSP), celebrated with the altar servers.
From the third Good Friday post: the Procession during the Mass of the Presanctified at St Joseph’s Oratory in Detroit, Michigan (ICKSP).
From the Tenebrae post: Holy Innocents in New York City.
From the first Holy Saturday post: the triple candlestick at Mater Ecclesiae in Berlin, New Jersey.
From the Easter Sunday post: a subdeacon sings the Epistle, standing in front of the icon of the Resurrection, at St Peter Eastern Catholic Church in Ukiah, California.
