Holy Week in Christianity is the conclusion of the season of Lent and the final week before Easter. For Christians, this week is the most sacred time of the church year. The week includes the holidays of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. It is a time of fasting, prayer and remembrance of the events leading to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. Gospel passages read during the week recall events at the end of Jesus’ life and ministry.
