Guide To Holy Week

Welcome to Holy Week! 

Each year, the Church celebrates the entire week before Easter Sunday. We are all familiar with the various celebrations and customs associated with with this week, but do we know how they came about?

Our Sunday Visitor has put together a “Guide To Holy Week” for those who want to know more about this holy time.

There’s also a short quiz to test your knowledge of the events and people involved in those events, list of ideas for things to do during the week to make it more meaningful, explanations of the customs associated (palm crosses, colored eggs, house cleaning, etc.) and more.

I think you’ll like it!

Over time, the practice of observing Holy Week spread throughout the Christian world, with prayers, historical re-enactments and special liturgies. During the Middle Ages, the celebration of the Easter Vigil gradually fell out of practice. The important days of the week were Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
