Upcoming Church Holidays

Just a reminder that we have pages on the following upcoming Church Holidays that may interest the readers that occasionally check out our blog. Check them out!

Next week begins Holy Week. The Sunday of Holy Week is Palm Sunday, which commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. The Thursday of Holy Week is called Holy Thursday, or in many churches, Maundy Thursday, and it is the day Christians recall the institution of the Eucharist and Ordination. Good Friday is when we celebrate the crucifixion and death of Jesus, which leads to Holy Saturday, when Jesus was in the tomb. Finally, this culminates in the feast of feasts, Easter Sunday and the Easter Season, which celebrates the glorious resurrection of the Lord.

Of note, in Catholicism, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter make up the Easter Triduum.
