Holy Week and Easter

posted 7 Apr 2017, 18:43 by Michelle Virgona
Holy Week is the lead up to the most important feast of the Church Year. The purpose of Holy Week is to reenact, relive and participate in the Passion of Jesus Christ. The days of Holy Week are:
♦ Palm Sunday (or Passion Sunday), the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem.
♦ Holy Thursday (or Maundy Thursday), the institution of Communion and the betrayal by Judas.
♦ Good Friday, the arrest, trial, crucifixion, death and burial of Jesus Christ.
♦ Holy Saturday, the Sabbath on which Jesus rested in the grave.
♦ Easter Sunday is the day that Jesus rose from the dead.

Easter is, above all, a time of hope. Jesus has overcome death, overcome all ultimate failure, and is risen from the dead. I encourage all families to celebrate together this Easter season by attending the Parish liturgies.
Term 2 resumes Monday 24th April.
