HOLY WEEK FACTS

HOLY WEEK
Theme: Reenacting the Passion of Our Lord

Dates: Holy Week is the last week of Lent.  This year, Holy Week begins on 29 March  2015 and ends on 5 April 2015.

Colors: In most churches, the decorations are red to symbolize the blood of martyrdom. Some churches remove all decorations on Good Friday, veiling anything that can’t be removed in black. You can read more about color in worship.

Scripture Readings: The Revised Common Lectionary appoints Scripture readings for use in worship during Holy Week.

The East: In the Eastern Church, this is called the Great Week. They have the same celebrations, but the dates are different because they use the Julian Calendar to calculate Easter.
