Join us for Holy Week

Graphic with Mountains and Cross to represent Holy Week

Holy week is the final week of Lent, a time of reflection leading up to Easter when Christians prepare to celebrate Jesus's resurrection.

Beginning with Palm Sunday, it recalls Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem. Maundy Thursday emphasizes the Last Supper and the Great Commandment or Mandate to love one another. Good Friday is a solemn remembrance of Jesus’ death on the cross. Easter Sunday is the joyful celebration of Jesus’ resurrection from the dead. Easter is the most significant Christian celebration and marks the fulfilment of God’s love through Jesus Christ. 

To celebrate Holy Week, we welcome all patients, colleagues and visitors to join our many church services in and around each of our hospitals as seen below.
