VATICAN CITY CNS – The Vatican published Pope Francis' calendar for Holy Week and Easter.

As is customary when first publishing the Pope's calendar for Holy Week, the Vatican did not provide the time or place for his celebration of the Mass of the Lord's Supper on Holy Thursday, April 6. Pope Francis has made it a tradition to celebrate the Mass and foot-washing ritual at a prison or detention center, refugee center or rehabilitation facility.

Here is the schedule of papal liturgical ceremonies and event for April released by the Vatican March 9:

– April 2, Palm Sunday, Mass in St. Peter's Square.

– April 6, Holy Thursday, morning chrism Mass in St. Peter's Basilica.

– April 7, Good Friday, afternoon liturgy of the Lord's passion in St. Peter's Basilica.

– April 7, Way of the Cross at night in Rome's Colosseum.

– April 8, Easter vigil Mass in the evening in St. Peter's Basilica.

– April 9, Easter morning Mass in St. Peter's Square, followed at noon by the Pope's blessing "urbi et orbi" (to the city and the world).

– April 28-30, Apostolic visit to Hungary.
