The Triduum is a three day period commemorating the final three days of Christ’s life. During this time, we should
not do what we usually do, so that we can enter faithfully into Christ's Passion, Death and Resurrection. As followers
of Christ we are asked to leave behind all that we can of our normal activities, so that together we can be a part of
these Three Days to be the best of who we are, and what we are called to be by our Baptism.
