Cathedral Liturgies for Holy Week and Easter Will Stream Live --
and Be Available for Viewing Later at Any Time.
Most of us can't get to the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption for the ceremonies of Holy Week and Easter: Spread through more than 90 parishes in the archdiocese, we are busy worshiping in our local communities. But if you can't get to the Cathedral during Easter -- now the Cathedral can come to you, and at a time of your choosing, day or night. The solemn and glorious Cathedral liturgies of Eastertide will be streamed on the Internet in real time; and the recordings will be immediately available on the archdiocesan YouTube channel, to be played at your convenience. See the beauty, hear the music, ponder the readings, enjoy the homilies, join in the prayers.
