Lent has been the build up and preparation to Easter, the most important day of our Liturgical year! 

Through Holy Week we focus on and remember Jesus’ last moments with his friends, his journey to Calvary, and his death. On Easter Sunday we celebrate his victory over death when he rose again!

 Palm Sunday is the day we remember when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey. The crowd was singing HOSANNA and placed palms and cloaks down before him.

Thursday is known as Holy Thursday and is the time we remember Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples and the Washing of the Feet.

Friday is known as Good Friday because that is the day that Jesus died.

Easter Sunday is the day that Jesus rose from the dead!

“He  is  not  here  he  has risen!”
Matthew 28.6
