Holy Week is the 7-day period from Palm Sunday to Jesus Christ's triumph over death on Easter Sunday. Holy Week is the week preceding Easter, the final week of Lent. Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday and ends with Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday. Holy Week includes Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. During Holy Week, Christians commemorate the Passion of Christ, who died on Good Friday in reparation for the sins of mankind, and rose on Easter Sunday to give new life to all who believe. Thus, while Holy Week is solemn and sorrowful, it also anticipates the joy of Easter through the recognition of God's goodness in sending His Son to die for our salvation.

We welcome Pastor Simon: Pastor Steve Simon is now serving Redeemer Lutheran Church as Vacancy Pastor while the congregation works with the LCMS Texas District to select and call a new full time pastor. We are greatful that Pastor Steve accepted the position of vacancy pastor, and we look forward to his friendship and faithful leadership.
