Holy Week at home 2024

Holy Week consists of a variety of important days: Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday celebrations. They focus on teaching us about the significance of Jesus’ journey from his entry into Jerusalem to his resurrection, through prayers, reflections, and symbolic rituals.

Please find below a wonderful pack of resources should you choose to complete as a family at home which Mrs Wright our Lay Chaplain has very kindly put together. Within the pack you will find:

-a Celebration of the Word for you to carry out at home on each of these special days. These do not need to take long. You can adapt them to suit yourselves and what you have available at home.

If it is possible, why not try setting up a special sacred space at home with an adult? You might include a purple cloth, a candle and a cross.


Please click on the links below to access the Celebrations of the Words for each special day during Holy Week. There is also an explanation document which helps explain how you can use these at home.
