United City Church Welcomes You to Holy Week
Welcome to United City Church, where we invite you to join us in celebrating Holy Week, a significant period in the Christian faith. This year, Holy Week begins with Lazarus Saturday on April 8 and culminates with Palm Sunday on April 9. Together, let us embark on a meaningful journey through these important days of remembrance and reflection.
What is Holy Week?
Holy Week, also known as Passion Week, commemorates the final week of Jesus Christ's earthly life, leading up to His crucifixion and resurrection. It is a time for believers to reflect on the profound sacrifice and love demonstrated by Christ during this pivotal period in human history.
Lazarus Saturday - April 8
Lazarus Saturday falls on April 8 this year. It marks the resurrection of Lazarus from the dead, a miracle performed by Jesus and a powerful foreshadowing of His own resurrection. This day serves as a prelude to the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday.
Palm Sunday - April 9
Palm Sunday, which falls on April 9, commemorates Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, just days before His crucifixion. The crowds welcomed Him with palm branches and shouts of "Hosanna!" as they recognized Him as the long-awaited Messiah. It is a day filled with both joyous celebration and a sense of impending sacrifice.
