Holy Week is a vivid reminder to us of what Jesus went through for our sinfulness. We gather at the Last Supper and spend some time with Jesus in the garden. We
venerate the Cross, the instrument Jesus used to bring us forgiveness of our sins. And then we welcome new
members into the Church through the waters of Baptism and come to celebrate new life at Easter. Mark these days
as special ones spending some time in Church and thanking the Lord for all He does for us.
