Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday, the day that we celebrate Christ's Triumphal Entry into the City of Jerusalem. It is also the day that we recognize that the journey towards the cross has begun, and that the week will end, not with shouts of praise, but cries of "Crucify" and cries of mourning.

Join us for this holy, complicated, and beautiful celebration as we enter into Holy Week together
