The action of this week moves from the triumph of the palm procession through the agony and death of the Lord to his glorious resurrection from the dead. During Holy Week, the people of God take time to reflect and pray about what Jesus has done for us in his love. We become more aware of the many ways in which we continue to live and experience the dying and rising of Jesus in our daily lives. In the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board, Holy week is an opportunity for students and staff to engage in the home-school-parish relationship by participating in the diverse liturgies that are celebrated, including Palm Sunday, the Chrism Mass and the Triduum, and to reflect on the Lord's passion through the Stations of the Cross.
