Holy Week in Lavenham and Preston St Mary

Holy Week and Easter

“Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, during Lent we have been preparing by works of love and self-sacrifice for the celebration of our Lord’s death and resurrection.  We now come together to begin this solemn celebration in union with the Church throughout the world.   Christ enters his own city to complete his work as our Saviour, to suffer, to die, and to rise again.  Let us go with him in faith and love, so that, united with him in his sufferings, we may share his risen life.”  (Introduction to Palm Sunday)
