Holy Week is a powerful journey that shapes our faith as we follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

For people new to the cycle of the church year and liturgy itself it’s hard to understand how vital this time can be without actually experiencing it. As someone relates it:

The Agony and Ecstasy of Palm Sunday, the prayer of Holy Monday and Tuesday, the amazement at the betrayal on Spy Wednesday, the grace of the new commandment on Maundy Thursday, the fasting, exhaustion and sadness with Christ’s crucifixion and entombment on Good Friday, the eager expectation and silence on Holy Saturday, and the sheer splendour, joy, brightness, wonder and feasting with the first proclamation, ‘Christ is Risen!’ as the Sun arises from Saturday to Sunday.

Here are some ways you can walk the journey of Holy Week with us this year:

We desperately need to hear and celebrate again that the Lord suffered on our behalf, loved his own to the end, endured the cross for us, and rose in victory over sin, death and disease. This is the powerful message of Holy Week and Easter, and it’s a message for our time. Thanks be to God!
