Holy Week Topics

The period we call “Great and Holy Week” is the holiest (and busiest!) Liturgical time of the year.

The Forty Days of the Great Fast (Great Lent) extend from “Clean Monday” through the Friday before Great and Holy Week.

Yet, even though the forty days of the “Great Fast” are over, we continue to fast another week, the “Great Week of the Lord's Passion (Holy Week).” Our fasting finally concludes following Great and Holy Saturday.

There is much, much to reflect on during Holy Week, and there many things to be aware of. The following links providing some introductory and general general information about the upcoming period:
