2024 Holy Week and Easter Masses in the Southern Tier region

The following list of Holy Week Masses and services for Diocese of Rochester parishes located in the Southern Tier region was compiled from parish bulletins and websites. Palm Sunday Masses were not included in this list as most parishes follow their normal Sunday Mass schedule. If a parish doesn’t have times listed, it is because these resources were not available or updated, and information will be added to this list as soon as it becomes available. Times are subject to change, and people are advised to check parish websites for the latest information.

The Diocese of Rochester’s Solemn Mass of Chrism is Tuesday, March 26 at 6 p.m. at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Rochester. All are welcome to attend.
