Holy Week, the final week of Lent, begins on Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter. Holy Week commemorates the Passion of Christ, from His triumphal entrance into Jerusalem, when palm branches were placed in His path, through His arrest on Holy Thursday and Crucifixion on Good Friday, to Holy Saturday, the day that Christ's body lay in the tomb.

How Is the Date of Holy Week Determined?

Because the date of Palm Sunday depends on the date of Easter, the dates of Holy Week change every year.

(See How Is the Date of Easter Calculated? for more details.)
