Holy week and Easter 

Holy Week follows the story of the last week of Jesus' life, from his entry into the holy city of Jerusalem, on Palm Sunday, to celebrate the Passover Festival.  

Liverpool Cathedral has a number of services and events taking place during Holy Week, including The Liverpool Passion Plays, taking place on 11 April.  The Liverpool Passion Plays tells the story of the last supper, as well as Jesus' arrest, trial and crucifixion.
