HOLY WEEK | April 14-21
Follow our Lord this Holy Week, from his triumphal entry, through his suffering and death, to the glory of his resurrection
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.
Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week. The procession with palms, which was already observed in Jerusalem in the fourth century, calls to mind the triumphal entry of Jesus, our Lord and King, into Jerusalem. The procession is fundamentally an act of worship, witness, and devotion to our Lord.
The purpose of Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem was to fulfill his Father’s will; thus it is fitting that this service continues with the reading of the Passion Gospel in which the whole story of the week is anticipated.
The emphasis of the liturgy turns to the days that lie ahead in Holy Week.
We who hail Jesus as king one moment, may in the next deny him, even joining with the crowd in shouting, “Crucify him!”
Service and children's Sunday school begin at 10am. See you there!
