Holy week, the week before Easter, is the most important week in the Churches calendar when we journey with Christ through the last days of his earthly life, remembering and entering into the story of his Passion. Since we are unable to gather for worship we have prepared worship resources for Holy Week - Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday, that can be used in your own home. These are not intended to replace the liturgies of Holy Week. Rather they are a prayerful effort to cultivate some of the rituals and spirit of Holy Week in our own homes while public celebration is not possible.
