Holy Week

We enter Holy Week confident that our community remains one in spirit and look forward to the time when we can gather together once again. May the promise of Resurrection instill hope and joy in our hearts during this challenging time.

Good Friday virtual liturgy will livestream on April 10 at noon PT. Credit: Art courtesy of St. James Cathedral (Washington), and artist Joan Brand-Landkamer.

Holy Week begins Sunday, March 28 with Palm Sunday, when we recall Jesus’ happy entry into the city of Jerusalem to celebrate Passover. As we move through the rest of the week, we will painfully recount the last days of his life and prepare to celebrate the Resurrection on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021.

Jesus’ suffering, death, and resurrection change everything. Jesus changes suffering into love; hatred into acceptance; injustice and discrimination into inclusion; death into life.

As you walk through the mystery of our faith for Holy Week, we hope you will participate in some of the prayers that Spiritual Life Council has created for our extended community. There are short prayer experiences for Holy Thursday and Holy Saturday and a full Stations of the Cross liturgy for Good Friday. Please visit the links below to pray with us.
