Holy Week in Bennekerry Parish 2019


Holy Week is the pinnacle of the Liturgical Year. We celebrate the passion, death and resurrection of Our Lord.  In doing so, we remind ourselves of the love of God for each one of us.  We pray as a community, for each other and our extended families so that we may know the power of transforming love in our own lives.

We bring to our week of prayer the poor, the crippled, the lame, the worried, the bereaved and the sick. We strive again to understand the immense love God has for us.
