Holy Week at Home: Resources for the Domestic Church

Triduum observance

Here are some resources for you if you are at a loss for how to best observe the Triduum, the three day liturgical season that precedes Easter and consists of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Saturday, including the Easter Vigil.

Less is more

A bit of advice: less may be better. These resources are not meant to fill up every corner of your life. So go easy. Choose one or two ways to meet your need for spiritual input and connection, then let God to the rest.

Balance the time you spend in silence, in spiritual reading, reflection, maybe journal writing, with time to enjoy nature, and your family.

Let God guide

Pay attention to the ways God may be calling you deeper within yourself and within the heart of your family and community.
