Holy Week and Easter

One of the most important periods in the Catholic calendar is Holy Week. It is a sequence of eight days that provides an opportunity for the Christian community to reflect on the transformation of humanity brought about by the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross. The week begins with Palm Sunday, the day Jesus entered the city of Jerusalem. It continues with the Last Supper, his crucifixion, and culminates in Easter Sunday, which marks his resurrection.

Holy Week 2025, will be celebrated by the Christian community worldwide from Sunday 13th April to Sunday 19th April.
