What is Holy Week Holy   week   is   the   most   special   week   in   the   Christian   year,   and   marks   the   incredible   eight   days   that   Jesus   and   His disciples   experenced   nearly   2000   years   ago,   from   His   arrival   in   Jerusalem,   to   His   betrayal   and   arrest,   His   execution, and finally his glorious rising from the dead. We celebrate Holy Week because it matters Christians   beleive   that   when   Jesus   died   on   the   cross,   He   died   to   take   away   our   sins,   and   when   He   rose   from   the dead, He broke the power of death, opening the way for us to have eternal life in heaven. The   services   of   Holy   Week   are   dramatic.   Many   are   full   of   ancient   worship   and   ritual,   culminating   in   the   stunning moments of Holy Saturday where, we light the flame of the Easter candle and declare that Jesus Christ is alive. Come   and   experience   the   beauty   of   jouneying   with   Jesus,   through   life   and   death,   and   to   the   dawning   of   life eternal.
