Holy Week and the Triduum
If you go from the pageantry of Palm Sunday straight to the glory of Easter, you will miss a profound journey. You will miss Jesus at the table with his disciples, instituting the Last Supper. You will miss him stooping down to wash the disciples’ feet. You will miss the hours of darkness and of silence that mark the time of Jesus’ death to his resurrection.
Consider journeying this Holy Week. There will be a daily Eucharist Monday through Wednesday. Make time in your day to engage in this if you can. There will be celebration of the institution of the Last Supper Maundy Thursday, followed by the stripping of the altar. There will be the solemnity of Good Friday, and the anticipation of Easter in a vigil on Saturday, followed by the joy of Easter morning.
If you go from the pageantry of Palm Sunday straight to the glory of Easter, you will miss a profound journey. See the bulletin for the list of services offered in Holy Week and the great three days of the Christian Passover.
