During Holy Week, which begins on Palm Sunday, the Church celebrates the mysteries of salvation accomplished by Christ in the last days of His life on earth, beginning with His messianic entrance into Jerusalem. The Lenten season lasts until the beginning of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday. The Easter Triduum begins at that point.
A special Holy Week and Easter web feature is now available on www.catholicbishops.ie to assist the faithful in their celebration of the most sacred week of the liturgical calendar. This feature will be updated to include information on events and ceremonies involving congregations for the first time since the lifting of Covid-19 related public health restrictions.
