Holy Week is unique in the experience of the Church. From Palm Sunday to the Day of Resurrection (Easter) those who determine to follow in the footsteps of Jesus and his first disciples will find themselves slowly entering a realm unlike any they have known before.
Each day - and consequently each liturgy - takes on its own unique form and character in the drama of the story of our Lord's passion, death, and resurrection. It is indeed a journey. Like the pilgrims of ancient days, it is my hope that as you journey with us at St Gregory's you will deepen and enrich your own spirituality.
Holy Week is not just for adults! The liveliness and diversity of the week especially speaks to children and helps them to see, hear, smell, and touch something of who Jesus was, who he is, and who he longs to be in their own lives.
I invite you to enter into the drama the Church has come to call Holy Week. Day by day, step by step, join us as we walk the path that Jesus walked. In doing so, may God strengthen your faith, kindle your hope and renew your love.
