During Holy Week we walk with Jesus, we suffer with him, we die with him, and we rise again as new creatures, brought deeply into joy of redemption and new life. The rites of Holy Week are ancient and by nature different from the liturgical celebrations of the rest of the Church Year. They are meant to be different in order to focus the attention of the people o the mysteries celebrated during this sacred time. As the Episcopal Church, we are a people of signs and symbols and it is important to spend time preparing for the liturgies of this most holy period and giving extra attention to the details so that the people are able to to fully participate, with all their senses, in these rites and also to ensure a flow in the liturgies.
