About The Event
Theme: Walking With Jesus to Jerusalem and Redemption
Holy Week is a time to prayerfully and joyfully reflect on the immediate days leading up to the death and resurrection of Jesus. It is during this week that Jesus experiences the adulation of the crowds as he enters Jerusalem, the intimacy of the Last Supper, the agony of the Cross, and the exhilaration of the resurrection from the dead.
As Christians we recognize that these days beautifully underline the meaning and the purpose of Jesus’ coming to humanity. We give praise and honor to the Son of God who came to bring plentiful redemption to all of creation.
But Holy Week is more than a nostalgic remembrance of events that took place long ago. It is happening right now. In the midst of our own struggles with discipleship Jesus continues to show us the meaning of life and living it to its fullest. In this way and by aligning ourselves to him we not only remember the events of Holy Week 2,000 years ago but how we are cast into our own Holy Week always seeing Our Lord as the example. We are the disciples.
Whatever our present state of life may be, the Holy Week retreat offers us time to quietly reflect, time to receive input, time to celebrate the Church’s special Liturgies of this week, and time to renew our own call to discipleship. The closer we connect with Jesus during this “week of all weeks” the closer we will be to understanding the elements that make up our own journey of faith.
Come join us for the journey!
