Palm Sunday_2017_KidsCelebrating Palm Sunday 2017
Sunday, March 25 at 9:30 AM we celebrate Palm Sunday, the day Jesus traveled into the city of Jerusalem. According to the Gospels, Jesus rode into the city on a donkey, and the celebrating people there paved his path with their cloaks and palm branches and welcomed him as a King.


Thursday, March 29 at 7:30 PM we celebrate Maundy Thursday, the day of the last Passover Supper that Jesus shared with his disciples. Before this festival meal, Jesus surprised his friends by washing their feet. He wanted to show his followers that they should love one another in humble ways. Later in the meal, Jesus passed around bread and wine. He told them that the bread was his body broken for them and the wine was his blood shed for them. He was telling them that he was going to die and that when they share bread and wine they should remember him. It was later on this night that Judas betrayed Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, and he was arrested.


Friday, March 30 at Noon and at 7:30 PM we will commemorate Good Friday, the day we remember Jesus' suffering and death on a cross. He was nailed to the cross at 9:00 in the morning and after an ordeal of six hours he died at 3:00 in the afternoon. And from noon everything became dark. But before his death he prayed to forgive the sinners who were responsible for his death by saying "Father forgive them, for they know not what they do".


Sunday, April 1 at 10:00 AM we will celebrate Easter, the day where we rejoice in the Resurrection of Jesus and his triumph over death. We remember that on that important day, his tomb was found empty and he appeared to the women who had come to the grave to care for his body. We remember that he died for us, but he rose triumphant.


"He is Risen, indeed!  Alleluia!  Come celebrate with us!"
