Holy Week at Home
Holy Week is the most important week of the liturgical calendar. Holy Week lasts from Palm Sunday until Easter Sunday and reaches its high point in what we call the Easter Triduum – those three great days from the evening Mass of the Lord's Supper to Evening Prayer on Easter Sunday. Reflecting on the Scriptures and turning to ritual and symbols, Christians throughout the world journey with Jesus through those final days of his life, his passion, his death and resurrection. In the process, we experience God's redemptive presence, our faith is deepened, our hope is renewed, and our commitment to living a life of love of God and one another is strengthened.
This year's celebrations will be very different from anything prior. The restrictions in place mean that as a Christian community, we cannot gather together for our usual religious services, Easter traditions, or time with extended family; however, this will not prevent us from uniting spiritually and taking time to pray, to reflect, and to make this Holy Week a truly enriching experience of the presence of God in our lives.
