Holy Week At Home
For the first time in living memory, we will be unable to gather as a community to celebrate the holiest of weeks in the Church's calendar.
To assist families in celebrating Holy Week at home, there are three resources that we would like to draw your attention to.
1) The first is a series of liturgies produced by Liturgy Brisbane to enable families to celebrate simple liturgies at home for Holy Week.

2) The second resource, also found on the Liturgy Brisbane website, has two parts.
a) Sunday Readings are provided along with associated commentaries. Families might like to read the Sunday readings aloud and reflect on the commentaries together.
b) Family Prayer Week By Week is designed for families with small children. An extract from the Sunday gospel (using the children's translation) is provided along with age appropriate reflections, a family activity, a worksheet and a short video clip.
This resource is updated each week. It will continue throughout the Easter season and beyond.

3) Thirdly, Liturgical Press have also prepared a resource which adapts the liturgies of Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday rituals for family and household prayer.
