Holy Week, the annual liturgical commemoration of the passion, death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, begins on Palm Sunday and ends with the Easter Vigil.

This service comprises a sequence of readings, music, and prayers. In some respects, it is like a Christmas Carol Service in structure, but the narrative in this case tells the story of the events of Holy Week up to the crucifixion, death, and burial of the Lord Jesus Christ. It includes some of the most powerful music of the season, and is a powerful and moving way to prepare for the days ahead.
