Holy Week Programs


As we celebrate the Paschal Mystery under some extraordinary circumstances this year, Mater Dei Radio is here to help you reflect more deeply upon the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Let us walk with Our Lady of Sorrows along the Way of the Cross to the promise of Easter Sunday.  Let us rejoice in the mercy of God and commit ourselves to celebrate this precious gift of faith in a recommitted way.
