As springtime arrives and we get closer to Easter, many Christians begin talking about “Holy Week.” So what is Holy Week, and why does it matter?

 

Very shortly after the beginnings of Christianity, followers of Jesus who lived around Jerusalem would gather and visit the places that had shaped the end of Jesus’ earthly life. Over the centuries, this practice of remembering the last days of Jesus’ earthly life spread throughout Christianity — and it is this time of remembering that we call “Holy Week.”  Holy Week recalls the events of the week that led up to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

 

Over the years, this week has been considered the most important and holy time in the life of the church — especially what is known as the “Triduum” — or Great Three Days — of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter morning.

 

Two thousand years later and half a world away, we continue this ancient and holy practice Spirit of Joy! Lutheran Church.  Many of the elements of our Holy Week worship have been used by Christians since at least the year 400 A.D., and continue to be used by Christians around the globe.

 

Join us for our worship during Lent and Holy Week, as we contemplate the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
