Holy Week

This week begins in triumph. As Jesus enters Jerusalem the people greet him with palms and sing his praises. By the end of the week he is betrayed, arrested, charged and hung on a cross to die for our sins.

 

    

Triduum

The summit of the Liturgical Year is the Easter Triduum--from the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday.  Though chronologically three days, they are liturgically one day unfolding for us the unity of Christ's Paschal Mystery.

The single celebration of the Triduum marks the end of the Lenten season, and leads to the Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord at the Easter Vigil.

The Seven Churches Pilgrimage....is a pious

Roman Catholic Lenten
 tradition to visit seven

churches on the evening of Holy Thursday.

The tradition of visiting seven churches was started by Saint Philip Neri around 1553. He and a few friends would gather before dawn and set out on their "Seven Churches Walk". These pilgrimages were designed to be a counterpoint to the raucous behavior of Carnival. The walks became very popular and began to attract others.

St. Walter Holy Thursday Pilgrimage to 7 Churches will take place on April 18. The busses will leave from the St. Walter parking lot around 8:15 PM immediately following the Mass of the Lord’s Supper.

The Churches of Naperville will  be visited. Sign up at the Faith Network Desk.
