Holy Week

Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday to commemorate the Messiah’s entry into Jerusalem to accomplish his paschal mystery. Palm Sunday commemorates the occasion that Christ rode to Jerusalem on a donkey and how people placed palms on the ground in front of him. Immediately following this great time of celebration over the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem, he begins his journey to the cross. The events of this journey are remembered during the evenings of devotion being held in Callander each day of Holy Week

Sunday 20th March 2016 –  PALM SUNDAY


Almighty and everlasting God,
who in your tender love towards the human race
sent your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ
to take upon him our flesh
and to suffer death upon the cross:
grant that we may follow the example of his patience and humility,
and also be made partakers of his resurrection;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
