Holy Week—the story of the days leading up to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ— is considered the lead up to Easter, the “high holiday" for Christianity and the crux of the story of the Gospel. To help you experience the stories of Holy Week in a meaningful way, we’ve created this simple resource for you to use in your homes. Whether you live alone, with roommates, with young children, or elderly parents, there is something here for everyone.
Each day, we have included readings from the Gospel narratives and simple reflection questions for you to ponder. Don’t worry about adapting an adult question or a five year old, we’ve done the work for you. We’ve included thoughtful reflection questions that are appropriate for different age groups — young children, older children and teens, and adults.
Feel free to alter or adapt this to fit your style, schedule, or the ages of your kids. Don’t have time to do an activity each day? That’s okay. Want to do even more? Go right ahead & consider this a starting point! The goal with this resource is that you would experience the story and miracle of Easter with those you love, no matter your age or station in life.
Filled with traditional, well-loved artwork depicting the events of Holy Week, this is a resource you will want to share with your families and have in your home. This PDF download is available for you to print.
Holy Week runs from April 2 to April 9, 2023.
