People across Kildare can make use of a fantastic resource in their home this Holy Week, which features plenty of ideas for each day.
Julie Kavanagh from the Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin was among those who prepared ‘Bringing Holy Week Home: A Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday Companion 2020’. Each of the eight days follows a similar pattern – a sentence giving the focus of the day, a Gospel quote, key points for those joining the liturgy of the day via digital broadcast, a prayer ritual for the home, and suggestions of practical actions or activities in tune with the day.
You can access an individual day or the complete set of resources via kandle.ie/holy-week-2020-resources/.
“This year we make our journey of Holy Week in a way like never before,” the Diocese explained. “As a Christian community we cannot gather. However, we can continue to keep Holy Week in our homes. We can [offer] up our prayer and join in union with the prayer of the Church as we live out these sacred days.”
Services are being streamed online in parishes across the diocese – visit kandle.ie/holy-week-parish-schedules/ for links and more information.
