The period between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, known as Holy Week, is the most sacred time of the liturgical year. It commemorates the final week of Jesus Christ’s life, encompassing significant events from his triumphant entry into Jerusalem, marked by Palm Sunday, through his Passion, Crucifixion on Good Friday, and culminating in the joyful celebration of his Resurrection on Easter Sunday. This week is a profound period of reflection, prayer, and renewal for Catholics worldwide.

We invite you to join us at these events at the UB Newman Center! All are welcome!
