Holy Week and Easter

In many ways, the entire Christian message is encapsulated in the eight-day period which begins on Palm Sunday, and concludes on Easter Sunday. The story of Jesus’ final week not only tells Jesus’ story, but ours as well. So come along for the journey. It will be an adventure which will change your life.
