Holy Week & Easter Services 2015

At Easter we celebrate the resurrection of Our Lord, Jesus Christ. It marks the end of Lent, a 40-day period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline and is a time of great joy.
The Easter season starts on Easter Day and lasts for 50 days. We believe that because Jesus died for us and rose again, he ‘wiped the slate clean’ of our sins and gave us eternal life.
The week before Easter is very special; it is called Holy Week and there is something happening on every day of Holy Week at St Leonard’s. The Easter Triduum (three days of prayer just before Easter Day: Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday) is most important part of the week.
