Photopost Request: The Sacred Triduum and Easter

As we traditionally do, we will plan on having 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! – 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 2019, starting with the altar of repose at the cathedral of St Paul in Birmingham, Alabama.
Solemn Mass of the Lord’s Supper at the church of St Eugène in Paris, home of the mighty Schola Sainte Cécile.
The incensation of the Blessed Sacrament during the Mass of the Presanctified at the church of the Holy Innocents in New York City.
The burial shroud of Christ during Vespers of Good Friday at the Byzantine Catholic Church of St John the Baptist in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
A particularly nice Tenebrae hearse at the Oratory of St Gianna in Tucson, Arizona.
The lighting of the Paschal reed at St Mary’s Parish in Kalamazo, Michigan.
