Holy Week began with the joyful and solemn celebration of Mass and the proclamation of the passion of Jesus on Palm Sunday, March 29, at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul in Philadelphia. Father Dennis Gill, cathedral rector, led one of the morning Masses. The cathedral will also host liturgies for the Triduum — Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday — the most sacred time for Christians around the world.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
