Good Friday is also just around the corner. I hope that some of the readers understand the point of my post. It would be best to simply ask a question if you don't understand anything.
We also celebrate Good Friday in the home, but the celebrations usually starts late until 9:00 p.m. or 9:30 after the Parish mass. We never hold our celebrations at the same time as the parish mass is going on. Communities who do not have a priest also do not have their celebrations at a different time. The reason being, the brothers would want to attend mass to receive the Eucharist on Good Friday. Afterwards, they would head to the home celebrations. By the time Good Friday mass is over, most people go home while many of the brothers walking in the Way head to the home celebration to listen more to the word of God.
These home celebrations is pretty much the same as the celebration of the Word that we normally have on Tuesdays or Wednesdays with some minor differences. It is also not a private celebration that the NCW decides to hold on their own. They follow the Statutes, which says:
The Church progressively initiates the neocatechumens into the catechetical and spiritual riches of the liturgical year, in which she "celebrates the whole mystery of Chirst."
The Easter Vigil is also not held at the same time as the parish Easter Vigil. The NCW Easter Vigil is much longer than the parish Easter Vigil. We stay up the entire night until Christ's resurrection. At the Easter Vigil, we also have baptisms. In the past Easter Vigil, we have had two former Protestants who joined the Catholic Church at our Easter Vigil.
