Holy Week SPECIAL

Opening Prayer

In the name of the Father,

and of the Son,

and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Lord Jesus, you gave your life
to save us from our sins.
Open our hearts this week

and learn to love and serve
our brothers and sisters like you.

Amen.

About Holy Week

The week leading up to Easter is called Holy Week. It is a very special week of celebrations which help us remember what happened during the last days of Jesus on Earth before he died.

On Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter, we remember Jesus' entry into Jerusalem like a king. We receive blessed palm branches at church.

On Monday of Holy Week, this year, we remember Jesus being anointed in Bethany.

On Tuesday of Holy Week, this year, we remember Jesus telling Peter he was going to deny knowing him three times before the rooster crows the next morning.

On Wednesday of Holy Week, this year, we remember how Judas planned to betray Jesus.

On Holy Thursday (or Maundy Thursday), we remember Jesus' Last Supper with his disciples. Holy Thursday is the first day of the Triduum (three days). After mass on Holy Thursday evening, we are invited to pray in silence with Jesus in the Eucharist, like Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane.

On Good Friday, we remember the suffering and death of Jesus. It is the second day of the Triduum.

Holy Saturday is a quiet, prayerful day. We remember Jesus laying in the tomb and we await with anticipation his resurrection. It is the third day of the Triduum. We start celebrating Easter on Holy Saturday evening at the Easter Vigil.

The Triduum is considered not three separate celebrations but ONE celebration that lasts three days.
