The Still Days

Maundy Thursday 29th March, Good Friday 30th and Holy Saturday 31st together make up the Triduum, the period of three days that begins with the Maundy Thursday evening service and ends on Easter Sunday. In Anglo-Saxon times it was referred to as “the still days” as no bells would be rung and the church organ not used.

During this period, we recall the foot washing and the Last Supper; the crucifixion, and the burial of Jesus.
Some wonderfully evocative poetry has been written to accompany these events of Holy Week. We’ve put it on a page that you can access by clicking here
