Holy Week: The Most Solemn Masses & Devotions of the Year
By Michelle Laque Johnson

EWTN's schedule is jam-packed with events from Rome, Washington, D.C., and our own EWTN chapel in Irondale, Ala. You won't want to miss Pope Francis celebrating these special events from Rome for the first time as Pope; the beautiful music from the choir at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception; and special homilies guaranteed to make your Holy Week and Easter celebrations just a little more special. (As always, please check our website for dates/times as these sometimes change. Events from Rome are highlighted in red.)
