Preparing for Holy Week- At Home

As we enter Holy Week 2020 we are experiencing the most unusual event in our faith history.  The Coronavirus has changed the whole celebration of all of these sacred days.

How are we to celebrate with no liturgies available in our parishes?  What are we called upon  to do ourselves to observe these most holy of days in the entire year? Here are some very helpful resources rich with spiritually enriching information to help us unite our hearts with Jesus’ Passion & Resurrection.
