Remembering Easter and the importance of Holy Week | Eastern North Carolina Now

I just wanted to write this out of respect for Easter and Holy week. We just celebrated Palm Sunday this past Sunday at many Churches across America and across the World.

    I just wanted to write this out of respect for Easter and Holy week. We just celebrated Palm Sunday this past Sunday at many Churches across America and across the World. Palm Sunday commemorates the entrance of Christ into Jerusalem during which branches were placed on His path. Holy Wednesday, commemorates the bargain of Judas as a clandestine spy among the Disciples.

    Maundy Thursday, also called Holy Thursday, is when Jesus had his Last Supper with His Disciples. And of course, Good Friday is an important day of the year because it celebrates for Christians what we believe to be the most momentous weekend in the history of the world!

    Good Friday, a Christian holiday commemorates the Crucifixion of Jesus, and his death at Calvary

    Finally, 3 days later Jesus arose from the grave and forever lives!

    I was personally disappointed that although many other county schools were closed in observance of Good Friday, Beaufort County Schools were not. I did bring this concern up at our last Board meeting on April 4th, 2023.

    I just wanted to end by thanking the Lord Jesus Christ for His love and sacrifice to us all during this very "special" time of year!
