For the first time in living memory most people will not be able to go to their local church for the most sacred week of the year. During Holy Week (between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday) Christians contemplate the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ and prayerfully attend a series of liturgies which are celebrated on the days corresponding to the events in the life of Christ.
