Holy Week and Easter

During Holy Week, the Church celebrates the mysteries of salvation accomplished by Christ in the last days of His life on earth, beginning with His messianic entrance into Jerusalem.  The Lenten season lasts until Holy Thursday.  The Easter Triduum begins with the evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday.
