I attended a Mass a few years ago, maybe 10 yrs during Holy Week. I am pretty sure it was Good Friday Mass at my Roman Catholic Parish. It wasn't a Cathedral or a Dicocesan See. Just a run of the mill Parish. I distinctly remember Nuns coming in and washing the altar and performing a number of rituals in and around the altar. Now over the past two years I attend all the Holy Week Masses but never do I see this act , or these acts repeated. Do any of you know what mass this is specifically? Was this just a once in a while type of thing? Wonder why I don't see this anymore? Any thoughts?
