Preparation for Holy Week

Holy Week is an important time for Christians throughout the world. Holy Week, the final week of Lent, begins on Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter. Holy Week is a time when Catholics gather to remember and participate in the Passion of Jesus Christ. The Passion was the final period of Christ’s life in Jerusalem. It spans from when He arrived in Jerusalem to when He was crucified.


St. Mary's wants to extend a huge thank you to Father Robert for spending time with students over this season of Lent from our Liturgy of the Word Services to Reconciliation in order to prepare us for Holy Week.
