The last week of Lent, Holy Week, remembers the last week of Christ's earthly life, beginning with Palm Sunday's commemoration of Jesus's triumphal entry into Jerusalem (Matt 21:1-11 ). So, put simply, Holy Week is the week between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday.

From early times, Christians have observed the week before Easter as a time of special prayer and devotion. As the pilgrim Egeria recorded in the late fourth century, numerous pilgrims to the holy city of Jerusalem followed the path of Jesus in his last days. They formed processions, worshipped where Christ suffered and died, and venerated sacred sites and relics. From this beginning evolved the practices we observe today on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. These services and our prayers through these days invite us to experience the last days of Jesus’ earthly life, as well as the time and events leading up to his resurrection. The three holy days, or Triduum, of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday are at the heart of Holy Week prayer and worship.

Parishioners and guests are invited to gather throughout Holy Week.
