Allelúia is a word familiar to all Christendom, whether the language of the local liturgy is Latin or Greek, Spanish or Ukrainian, Polish or Vietnamese. It is the Latinized form of Hebrew’s Hallelujah (i.e., “Praise the Lord”). In the West, we associate Allelúia with the joy of the Resurrection and Easter. Consequently, the Church buries the Allelúia while we put on the ashes and sackcloth of penance.
The first day of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday February 10th, join us for Mass and the imposition of ashes. Masses 7:00am (English), 8:00am (Tridentine), 12:00pm (English), 7:30pm (Tridentine High Mass).
