A Holy Week procession is an event taking place in Holy Week, most often in a country with traditional Roman Catholic culture.

* Palm Sunday: The day when Jesus arrived in Jerusalem.
* Holy Thursday: The day when Jesus gave Last Supper with His Apostles, followed by the beginning of his passion.
* Good Friday: Jesus' crucifixion, performed in 14 stations.
* Holy Saturday: Loneliness of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the day that Jesus Christ's body lay in the tomb.
* Easter Sunday: The resurrection of the Christ.
