Virtual Holy Week

Keeping Communion

April 11, 2020

This 2020 Holy Week, we were fortunate to celebrate Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Sunday as a community online using the Zoom meeting platform.

We give many thanks to all who participated and contributed to greatly enhance the Mass celebrations. In particular:

(dancer) Paige from Deeply Rooted Productions

(drummer) Baba Tyler from Barbara A. Sizemore Academy

(lectors) Alfred Dellahousaye, Angela Hicks, Anne Lindsey, Candyce Tines, Claire Williams, Daryl Anderson, Francine Stewart, JoAnn Allen, Lisa Woolfolk, Michelle Tines, Sydnee Marks, Tiombe Eiland, and Yolanda Douglas

(pianist) Aminata Burton, Deonco Taylor, Eric Rutherford, and Tyrone Stewart

(singers) Dee Guyton, Dr. Kevin Johnson, LeQuita Peel, and Phillip Armstrong

(voice actors) Peter, Richard and Ian of Richard Gallion Entertainment

Father David Jones and Sister Joanne Delehanty, OP and all the many individuals who worked behind the scenes to make this experience possible. We look forward in reuniting once more in person in our parish; “the Catholic Church in Englewood.”
