Palm Sunday is the start of Holy Week. Holy Week is a very sacred time of the year. We will remember the last week of Jesus's life on earth. The Lenten season of sacrifice and self-denial is about to come to an end, but this coming week is extremely important for all Christians. The greatest focus of the week is the Passion (suffering) and Resurrection of Jesus Christ and the events that led up to it. There will be a performance of the Passion Play on Thursday. Please check the calendar.
