Holy Week liturgies are set at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral and Saint Meinrad

Holy Week liturgies at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral in Indianapolis and Saint Meinrad Archabbey Church of Our Lady of Einsiedeln in St. Meinrad are open to the public.

Bishop Christopher J. Coyne, apostolic administrator, is scheduled to be the principal celebrant of all the liturgies at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral, 1347 N. Meridian St., in Indianapolis, including the Easter Sunday Mass. Father Noah Casey, rector of the cathedral, will be the homilist at the Easter Sunday Mass.
