Holy Thursday: One of two brothers who later celebrated the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist) at the Easter Vigil at our province ministry of The Franciscan Church of the Assumption in Syracuse, NY. They received instruction from Our Lady of the Angels Province friar, Fr. Brennan-Joseph Farleo, OFM Conv. and their grandmother. These two young parishioners also serve the parish as hospitality ministers and assist with parish events. They had their feet washed by their pastor, Fr. Rick Riccioli, OFM Conv., during the Mass of the Lord’s Supper.

Good Friday: A very Spirit-filled and blessed experience of the Stations of the Cross with Our Lady of the Angels Province friar, Fr. Tim Dore, OFM Conv.
