While the date Sunday, March 24, may pass imperceptibly for many, millions around the world will gather at sundown to commemorate the death of Jesus Christ.

Considered the most important day of the year for Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Memorial is observed annually on Nisan 14 of the Jewish calendar in adherence to Jesus’ statement found at Luke 22:19, “Keep doing this in remembrance of me.”

Though there are over 8.6 million Jehovah’s Witnesses around the world, almost 20 million people attended the event last year.

“Around the world, many people who are not Jehovah’s Witnesses attend the Memorial.

We hope that members of our local community will also join us in remembering the death of Jesus Christ to show gratitude for his sacrifice,” said Carl Harris, spokesperson for Jehovah’s Witnesses.

“While it is a solemn occasion, it is also a joyous one.”

The one-hour event will feature a talk highlighting the significance of Jesus’ death and what it means for all of mankind.

In Antigua and Barbuda, a special campaign will be launched during March 2024 to invite local residents to attend the annual observance of the Lord’s Evening Meal.

Joel Euzebe says: “My wife and I have grown to appreciate what this occasion means to us and to all mankind; a time to reflect on the greatest expression of love ever shown and to look forward to future blessings in store because of Christ’s sacrifice.

We enjoy being able to tell others about it and share in inviting others to the Memorial celebration.”
