Holy Week at the Cathedral


The Sacred Triduum is the culmination of the entire liturgical year, commemorating the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. While we do not spend all of these three days in church, we are called to gather together as the cathedral community for these principal services. On Maundy Thursday we remember the Last Supper; Jesus gives us the Eucharist and tells us to Do this in memory of me and then washes the feet of his disciples. On Good Friday we remember the passion and death of Jesus. We celebrate the resurrection of Christ at the Great Vigil of Easter on Saturday or on Easter Sunday. The Sacred Triduum is one single celebration that lasts for three days. We cannot separate the death of Jesus from his resurrection.
