Now you can celebrate The Holy Week of Lent at home!

The Municipality of Braga and the Quaresma Commission provide an event for Christians to celebrate Easter at home

The Lent and Solemnities of Holy Week Commission, the Archdiocese of Braga and the Municipality of Braga have prepared a digital program that allows everyone to celebrate the Holy Week 2020 from home, with simple internet access.

In this event, contents will be shared (here) including live transmissions of the Eucharists, the repetition of last year’s Procession transmissions, the premiere of new episodes of the series ´Santos da Casa´ and other informative content about the Processions and the history of Holy Week in Braga.

This provides the community with an opportunity to experience the Holy Week of Braga in a symbolic but effective way. Away from direct contact, but close by remembrance and possible participation.

Full of secular traditions, Semana Santa de Braga is one of the greatest moments in the life of the City and this year, even with the conditions derived from the Pandemic of Covid-19, it will continue to be so.

Domingo de Ramos

Todos os anos milhares de fiéis assistem à solene Procissão dos Passos. No Domingo de Ramos desfilam pelas ruas da Cidade as figuras que intervieram no julgamento, condenação e morte de Jesus.O Domingo de Ramos é o pórtico de entrada na Semana Santa. Neste dia a Igreja comemora a entrada de Jesus em Jerusalém, para consumar o seu mistério pascal. É uma entrada que prefigura e preludia a sua entrada, pela Ressurreição gloriosa, na Jerusalém Celeste. Jesus, porém, quis chegar ao triunfo passando pela Paixão e Morte. Por isso se lê, na Missa de Ramos, o evangelho da Paixão. Os fiéis são convidados a olhar para Jesus, o qual «sofreu por nós, deixando-nos o exemplo, para que sigamos os seus passos».A Procissão é organizada pela Irmandade de Santa Cruz.
