Holy Week comes at the end of the season of Lent, and it is the week before Easter. As Holy Week approaches, the atmosphere of the season darkens; the readings begin to anticipate the story of Christ’s suffering and death.
The Fifth Sunday of Lent is known as Passion Sunday, named after the reading of the Passion Narrative. On Palm Sunday (the Sixth Sunday) we tell the story of of Jesus from his entrance into Jerusalem and in the hours leading up to His trial and execution by crucifixion.
You are invited to join us as we follow Christ's journey through dramatic liturgy, choral music and prayer towards the heart of the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus at Easter. All are welcome.
Join us for a child-friendly reflection on the themes and meaning of Holy Week
