Easter is the most important week in the Christian calendar. This year we invite you to enter the significance of Holy Week by pondering scripture, participating in different activities, and coming to God in prayer

“Holy Week moves from the enthusiastic shouts of ‘Hosanna’ to the somberness of Holy Wednesday…, to the horrors of the agony and death of Jesus on Good Friday, to the joyous celebration of the first Eucharist of Easter. “ Trinity College Theological Studies.

Each day there will be scripture to read from the week Jesus was crucified, an activity to enter what was happening and a pre-written prayer to spur on your own prayer. Feel free to adapt the prayer and practice to your personality and lifestyle. These are invitations; you make decisions as you adapt them to your life. It would be beneficial to look ahead at the practices for the week as you may need to prepare or set aside time for them.

Since this week is about Jesus’ journey to the cross, we invite you to also carry a cross with you wherever you go this week in your bag or pocket. Also, hold the cross while participating in the exercises below as a tangible reminder of what Jesus did during this week.
