The web page www.romereports.com will provide live coverage of all the ceremonies.

On social media, you can follow the latest on Facebook and Twitter, @romereports and @romereportsesp with updated information as well as summaries of each ceremony in both English and Spanish.

In total, there will be seven broadcasts:

Holy Thursday
In the morning, Chrism Mass will be held in the Vatican and in the afternoon it will move to a reception center for asylum seekers in a village in the outskirts of Rome. There, the Pope will wash the feet of 12 young refugees.

Holy Friday
In addition to the second great ceremony of Easter Triduum, in which the Lord's Passion is recalled, Pope Francis will attend the Via Crucis at the Colosseum.

Holy Saturday
In the evening, St. Peter's Basilica will be lit only with candles to commemorate the Resurrection of Christ.

Easter Sunday
On Sunday, you can see the Mass live early in the morning; and then the Urbi et Orbi blessing and the Pope's third message for Easter.
