Celebrating Holy Week as a Family – Well here we are again, at the start of Holy Week. Perhaps there was a time earlier in your life when it was possible to enter into the parish observances of this week without loading a diaper bag. When the Holy Thursday Mass of the Lord’s Supper did not present a conflict for a child with stacks of homework. Sometimes in the life of a family it is a challenge to be able get out of the house at all.
So what is a parent to do? As the caretakers of the domestic church, how do we live Holy Week as a parent, a spouse and a family? To answer those questions we bring you back to a wonderful article by Katie that first appeared in our blog last year. In Celebrating Holy Week as a Family, Katie offers a comprehensive list of ideas for parents, particularly parent of young children, to encounter this special time in the life of the Church. Read, Enjoy, Plan and Celebrate with your family.
