ACI Prensa Staff, Mar 17, 2021 / 03:18 pm (CNA).- Every year the dates of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday vary.

The Catholic Church determines the date based on the fact that Christ’s death occurred near the Jewish Passover, which is stated in the Gospel accounts of the Last Supper, when Jesus gathered with the Apostles to celebrate the feast commemorating the Exodus of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt.

According to the Mosaic Law, the Jewish people must renew this celebration each year on the 15th of the month of Nisan, which begins with the first new moon of Spring.
