The summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum—from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ's Paschal Mystery.


The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the Easter Vigil.


The liturgical services that take place during the Triduum are:


Mass of the Lord's Supper - Holy Thursday – includes the washing of the feet

Good Friday of the Lord's Passion – includes the Adoration of the Cross

Easter Vigil Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord – includes the blessing of the Easter Fire and Paschal candle and the Sacraments of Initiation for those entering the church.

Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of the Lord at the Mass during the Day


To watch videos about the Triduum, click here and here. Triduum, The Paschal Mystery, and Q&A are great videos about this Holy Week found on FORMED.




139. Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday, or "Passion Sunday", which unites the royal splendour of Christ with the proclamation of his Passion.”


The procession, commemorating Christ's messianic entry into Jerusalem, is joyous and popular in character. The faithful usually keep palm or olive branches, or other greenery which have been blessed on Palm Sunday in their homes or in their workplaces.


The faithful, however, should be instructed as to the meaning of this celebration so that they might grasp its significance. They should be opportunely reminded that the important thing is participation at the procession and not only the obtaining of palm or olive branches. Palms or olive branches should not be kept as amulets, or for therapeutic or magical reasons to dispel evil spirits or to prevent the damage these cause in the fields or in the homes, all of which can assume a certain superstitious guise.


Palms and olive branches are kept in the home as a witness to faith in Jesus Christ, the messianic king, and in his Paschal Victory.
