Holy Week starts with Palm Sunday, continues with Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday.

“In Christianity, Holy Week is the last week of Lent and the week before Easter. It includes the religious holidays of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday (Holy Thursday), Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. It does not include Easter Sunday.”
Found a beautiful video by DLS Christian Brothers on YouTube. Worth a listen.

After Holy Week, comes the glorious day on Sunday…Easter.
Christ is Risen!
“Easter is the greatest feast in the Christian calendar. On this Sunday, Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. For Catholics, Easter Sunday comes at the end of 40 days of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving known as Lent. Through spiritual struggle and self-denial, we have prepared ourselves to die spiritually with Christ on Good Friday, the day of His Crucifixion, so that we can rise again with Him in new life on Easter.”
VIDEO: What Is Catholic Easter?
“It is Christ’s resurrection that gives us promise of new life in this world and the next.
That new life began on Easter Sunday. In the Lord’s Prayer, we pray that our kingdom come, on earth, as it is in heaven.”
The Lord’s Prayer
(The prayer which Jesus Christ taught to His disciples.)
Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.
