Holy Week

An Illustrated Guide to the Triduum

This coming Sunday, we celebrate Palm Sunday and with that, enter into Holy Week. Let us begin to prepare for this most blessed time of year.

For Catholics, the three days prior to Easter Sunday are known as the Triduum. These days are truly holy; they bridge Lent and Easter by allowing the faithful to follow the last days of Jesus’ life. The Triduum are full of symbols, special prayers and music, and unique ways to pray as the universal Church. FOCUS.org has created this Illustrated Guide to the Triduum to help us understand all we see and do during the liturgies of Holy Thursday, Good Friday and the Easter Vigil.
