WASHINGTON (CNS) — As the coronavirus persists in the United States, the number of Masses, Stations of the Cross, meditations and other devotions being livestreamed by U.S. dioceses, parishes and other groups around country continues to grow, especially during this Holy Week.

Churches remain closed to public celebration of the Mass, including the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, the nation’s preeminent Marian shrine, which is normally open to visitors 365 days of the year. It invites all Catholics to join its celebration of the Holy Triduum virtually via its website: https://www.nationalshrine.org/blog/join-us-virtually-as-we-observe-palm-sunday-holy-week-easter.

St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City also has been livestreaming Holy Week liturgies, https://saintpatrickscathedral.org/live.

The homepage of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities, https://www.ajcunet.edu, has links to livestreamed Masses at Jesuit college and university churches and chapels for Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday.

Among other Catholic universities and colleges offering virtual Triduum services is Villanova University in Pennsylvania, which will livestream Easter Sunday Mass via this link: https://www1.villanova.edu/content/university/president.html. (Scroll down to Holy Week Mass).

Via its website, http://www.ncronline.org, National Catholic Reporter, an independent biweekly newspaper based in Kansas City, Missouri, is sharing a liturgy resource for an Easter Triduum virtual celebration put together by board member and composer Dan Schutte. The direct link to this is: https://www.danschuttemusic.com/wordpressstore/easter-triduum. The NCR site has articles on the Triduum by Schutte.

An online database called “With Your Spirit” — https://withyourspirit.org — lists livestreamed Masses around the country and allows Catholics to add Masses and other online services they know of to the database, which has been compiled by Michael Bayer, director of evangelization and adult formation at St. Clement Catholic Church in Chicago, with the help of many volunteers.
