What Worship is Held at Easter?

In 2023, Easter will be held on Sunday, April 9, 2023. The celebration is 3 days after Good Friday. In celebrating Easter, these worships are usually performed by Christians.

  1. Palm Sunday

    Palm Sunday is a day of remembrance in the Roman Catholic Church. The activity was carried out in the church on the Sunday before Easter.

    Its implementation refers to events recorded in four verses of the Bible. The celebration is held to commemorate the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. This was something special because Jesus was able to enter the holy city before being tortured and managed to rise from the dead.

    The symbol of the Palm Sunday celebration is a palm frond which has the meaning of victory. Christ also showed the palm branches associated with victory over sin and death.

    However, Palm Sunday is not only a momentum to commemorate Jesus' victory over death. It is also a time to remember Jesus' passion while being tortured.

    These stories will be read on Palm Sunday. Later, it will also be told again on Good Friday with a different interpretation.

  2. Way of The Cross

    The Way of the Cross or known as the Via Dolorosa is the Way of Suffering. The road becomes a picture of the final moments of Jesus' suffering. There is a tradition of devotion held by the entire Roman Catholic Church.

    Actually, devotion can be done at any time. However, it will usually be held in the days leading up to Easter. Especially when Good Friday and the Friday night before Easter are held.

    In this tradition, there are 14 stops or road stations. Then, Adoramus Te will be sung at each of those stops.

  3. Maundy Thursday

    Maundy Thursday is better known as Holy Thursday. On Maundy Thursday, the Last Supper was held. The event itself was held from 6 pm and carried out for 7 days.

  4. Good Friday

    Good Friday is held to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus and his death at Golgotha. The death of Jesus is estimated to have occurred in 34 AD based on the results of the analysis of Scientist Isaac Newton.


  5. Pentecost Day

    This day is known as White Sunday. Pentecost is a celebration to commemorate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on all the prophets in Jerusalem. This event occurred 50 days after Jesus' resurrection.
