Holy Week 2021

The “Easter Triduum”
(Latin: three days)

This is the most ancient and central celebration of the Church’s liturgical year. The three-day celebration begins with Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples (Holy Thursday), his crucifixion and death (Good Friday), and his resurrection (Easter Vigil and Easter Day).

The Triduum is a commemoration of Jesus’ death and resurrection into new life. We celebrate what we believe: that Christ by dying destroyed our death, and by rising, he restored our life. This liturgical season is celebrated as one great feast, the solemn celebration of the Church year.

The Triduum celebrates our participation as parish communities in God’s saving action as we pass from death to new life in Christ.
