Holy Week Online and Broadcast Mass Times & Spiritual Resources

We encourage Catholics to take part in today’s Palm Sunday celebration in our online communities and in our homes even though we cannot worship together in our parishes.

With the suspension of all public Masses throughout our diocese, we are facing an unimaginable Holy Week. There will be no Palm Sundays in our parishes, no Triduum liturgies, no Easter Sunday Mass. Yet, even under these circumstances, we can still celebrate Holy Week at home, in a meaningful way. 

Drawing Closer to Christ this Holy Week

READ SCRIPTURE DAILY: Pray along with the church, using the daily readings. This is a wonderful way of following Jesus, from Palm Sunday, through Easter morning. 

REFRAIN FROM NOISE AND MEDIA: During Holy Week, limit secular television and radio. Instead, opt for listening to sacred music or television shows.  

FAITH FORMATION: Holy Week is a wonderful opportunity for spiritual growth. Read a spiritual book, watch a video or listen to a podcast, all free from Formed.

PALM SUNDAY: Place a branch of any kind on your door or window, publicly acknowledging Palm Sunday, and post and share "Virtual Palms" on your social media channels.   

HOLY THURSDAY: Have a simple foot washing ceremony with the family. Read John 13: 1-15. Wash each other’s feet. Share ways you can be of service to one another. The rest of the evening, spend in quiet, spending time with Jesus in the Garden. 

GOOD FRIDAY: Keep a period of silence from noon – 3pm. At 3pm, venerate the cross. Read John 18: 1-19:42 and spend time before the crucifix. Pray the Stations of the Cross.  

HOLY SATURDAY: Rest and wait on this day, waiting by Jesus’ tomb. Read John 19: 25-27 and take Mary into your heart and home. Go outside...take a walk around the neighborhood. Use chalk and write hopeful messages on the sidewalk or driveway.
