Preparing Your Family for Holy Week

With Great Lent winding down, we sense the nearness of Pascha—the Feast of Feasts! After the ‘bridge’ of Lazarus Saturday and Palm Sunday, we’ll arrive at the distinct point of Holy Week. It will be time for us to “go up to Jerusalem,” sharing in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ’s Passion, Crucifixion, and triumphant Resurrection. The watchful disposition of the Church is, especially at this time, reflected in the home. It is a week that calls for prayer, focus, stamina, and—for most of us—planning! Over the last few years, the Center for Family Care has produced two webinars specifically designed to encourage families to experience Holy Week in a rich and meaningful way. Along with new supplemental discussion points, we offer these presentations again to assist your family in its Holy Week preparation. More »
