Lent, Holy Week & Easter at St Albans Cathedral
During Holy Week we are invited to share in Christ's own journey, from the triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to the desolation of Good Friday and Holy Saturday and finally the joyful celebrations of Easter Sunday.
This year, our Holy Week Preacher is the Rt Revd Graeme Knowles CVO, former Dean of St Paul's.
We are often told of the “drama” of Holy Week. As the events of this Great Week unfold, we tread with Jesus the road that leads through Gethsemane to the streets of Jerusalem and on to Golgotha. We hold our breath as he lies in the grave on Holy Saturday, looking to the glory of resurrection on Easter Morning.
During his Holy Week addresses, Graeme Knowles will ask us not simply to be observers of the drama, but to take our place in it. He will look as some of the dramatis personae, examining the roles they play in Jesus’ Passion, and their relevance to us in our Christian pilgrimage.
