Letter from the Paster – Holy Week 2016

A letter from the Pastor –  HOLY WEEK 2016
All Souls Church
To my sisters and brothers in Christ at All Souls,
On Ash Wednesday we began our spiritual journey of renewal, a period of 40 days, known as Lent.
This Sunday, known as Palm Sunday, marks the beginning of a week that is special to Christians throughout the whole world, Holy Week.  We begin our Holy Week celebration with palm branches in our hands, recalling the crowds that cried both “Hosanna!” and “Crucify!” celebrating Christ’s entrance into Jerusalem to accomplish his paschal mystery.  On Maundy Thursday we begin our three-day celebration of the passion and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, the sacred paschal Triduum.
Let us make this a solemn three day retreat, and together come to know more deeply the heart of our faith, the heart of our loving God.  I encourage you to make every effort possible to participate in our services of Holy Week.
Rev. Henry Pruski
Pastor, All Souls
