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

Bishop Christopher J. Coyne, vicar general, is scheduled to be the principal celebrant of the Mass for Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion at SS. Peter and Paul Cathedral, 1347 N. Meridian St., in Indianapolis on March 24. Archbishop Joseph W. Tobin is the scheduled celebrant for the rest of the cathedral’s Holy Week and Easter Sunday liturgies listed below.

Starting times for all liturgies at the Archabbey Church of Our Lady of Einsiedeln in St. Meinrad are central time.
