This Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, when the Church celebrates the most sacred liturgies of the year.
Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday are marked by three services which are in fact one liturgy. Through this three day liturgy we commemorate the institution of the Eucharist and Holy Orders (Maundy Thursday), Jesus Christ’s passion and death (Good Friday) and the Lord’s resurrection (Holy Saturday night).
This year these celebrations will be a little different. In the video below I discuss what will be different, as well as what it is that happens in each of these services.
You are very welcome to join us in Leamington Spa (St Peter’s) and Lillington (Our Lady’s) – service details are on the parish website: https://www.catholicleamington.org.uk/
If you are unable to come to church at this time you are invited to join Archbishop Bernard Longley at St Chad’s Cathedral through the cathedral’s livestream: https://www.stchadscathedral.org.uk/
I wish you a very peaceful and blessed Holy Week.
