Holy Week 2023

Journey with Jesus through these sacred days.

Holy Week is the most solemn and sacred time of the Christian year, when we are invited by our liturgical tradition to contemplate the events leading up to Jesus' crucifixion, death and resurrection.

We are also invited to take these ancient liturgies into our own hearts and consider what they might mean for us in this moment, opening ourselves to the possibility of grace and transformation. We invite you to journey with Jesus through these sacred days.

During Holy Week, we will hear about Jesus' final days in Jerusalem, the story of his Last Supper with friends and his Passion and death on the cross. As we experience his love and commitment to being with us even unto the point of death, we remember that we are not alone. Jesus is with us even now.
