Praying Holy Week: Resource Pages

Each day of Holy Week offers a fresh invitation to engage with this most sacred season. 

Below you'll find a resource page for each day of Holy Week. We hope these selections of music, sermons, videos, and photographs will help you pray along the road to Calvary and the Empty Tomb.

 

  • Palm Sunday
    We hear anew the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Monday in Holy Week
    An invitation to experience spiritual mystery on its deepest and most cosmic scale.
  • Tuesday in Holy Week
    Transformed into the Body of Christ, we are given for the world.
  • Wednesday in Holy Week
    Sustained reflection on the Lord’s suffering and death.
  • Maundy Thursday
    The beginning of the holiest three days in an already holy week.
  • Good Friday
    We commemorate the Lord’s crucifixion and death.
  • Holy Saturday
    A day of waiting, anticipation, and preparation. 
  • Easter Sunday
    Alleluia! Christ is risen! The Lord is risen indeed! Alleluia!

    I have found the Lent course of Marks of Mission invaluable as a starter for sermons and other reflexion during the run up to Easter. I have appreciated how rewarding it is to be drawn to contemplate more deeply the five wounds of Christ at this time.
    I was pleased to see that your videos are once again being shown daily in the cathedral in Canterbury.
    Thank you for your inspiration from across the Pond!
    Have a joyous Easter

    The Lenten Study, “Marks of Mission” has been a source of growth and a deeper consciousness and inspiration of the love of Christ in our lives and how we (I) can reach out in faith to serve others in a loving, caring way to the glory of God.

    Thank you for Lenten journey. It is so good to feel part of this virtual community. I continue with you in prayer.

    As someone who remembers Father Banner at the old wooden
    church on Bowdin Street in Boston, it’s reassuring to see that
    SSJE is still providing its healing services.
