The importance of 5th April
Holy Week (the eight days from Palm Sunday to Easter Day) is the most significant part of the whole Christian year. It matches day for day the last week of Jesus’ life from entering Jerusalem, through Last Supper (on Maundy Thursday) and crucifixion (on Good Friday) to resurrection. It allows us to follow the events which are covered by about a third of the Gospel accounts. So the First Sunday Thing on Palm Sunday, which will include activities relating to different parts of Holy Week, is an opportunity to touch the heart of what this is all about.
