Celebrating Holy Week at Home
This is pretty much unprecedented in the Church...no public Masses for so long! No fellowship, no in-person ministry. It is so weird and surreal. We have to look back to times of major persecution in the Church to find anything similar. I think of the times during the Catholic persecutions in England during the reign's of King James and Queen Elizabeth I: priests were in hiding, Catholic families had hidden chapels within their manor houses, Mass was rare. If you weren't rich, you didn't have access to a priest for Confession or Mass or any Sacraments. Families relied on the parents to lead prayer and worship in the homes.
This is what we are asking you to do now...lead your family in the sacred prayers and liturgies that you can at home. You can do a few things to help make Holy Week 2020 a truly memorable and special time! Click the image below to go to our Faith Formation website with details about each day.
