Holy Week

HolyWeekWe begin Holy Week tomorrow – with the celebration of Our Lord’s triumphant entrance into Jerusalem where he was welcomed by crowds worshipping him and laying down palm leaves before him.  This is known as Palm Sunday or Passion Sunday, and this Sunday is also consider still Lent period – the sixth (and last) Sunday of Lent.

Following Palm Sunday, we will then celebrate the ‘Easter Triduum’.   (A ‘triduum’ is a space of three days usually accompanying a church festival or holy days that are devoted to special prayer and observance).  The Easter Triduum consists of Holy/Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Vigil/Sunday (sometimes known as ‘Holy Saturday’).

Read about the Holy Week on Catholic Online or google for it for some other source.

Don’t forget to attend all services during Holy Week. For the schedule in our parish, please refer to the earlier post, ‘Holy Week Schedule‘.
