Holy Week and Easter

Sunday, March 24 — Saturday, March 30

Holy Week

The services we celebrate now during Holy Week are ancient in nature and quite different than liturgical celebrations we celebrate throughout the year. Holy Week, or the time from Palm Sunday and Easter seems endless – and it’s intended to. Time is suspended as we celebrate the great mysteries of our redemption. This slower pace allows us to more intently contemplate the death and resurrection of Christ. 

Sunday, March 31

Easter Sunday

The Christian story persists because although Jesus was crucified, dead and buried, his friends walked and spoke and ate with him in the days that followed, and their powerful accounts inspired Christian witness to this very day. We join millennia of hopeful seekers, as our joyful alleluias ring out at the empty tomb and the sacred promises of life. 

Cathedral liturgy is celebrated with choral and instrumental music and hymns; the proclamation of our sacred stories, a sermon, prayers for the world, and the sharing of Holy Communion. All are welcome.
