Holy Week and Easter 2013

Holy Week starts with Palm Sunday which commemorates crowds welcoming Jesus with loud Hosannas as He was entering Jerusalem. This is followed by Holy Thusday (Maundy Thursday) where he had his Last Supper, and after which he was betrayed. The result of the betrayal was Good Friday, where Jesus was crucified and died for our sins.

Then, Easter Sunday celebrates Jesus’ resurrection on the third day (Friday, Saturday, Sunday).
