What is Holy Week?


Holy Week is the week before Easter, when we remember the events of the last days of Jesus life, his death, and prepare for his resurrection.

This week is full of opportunities for sharing stories and sacred moments with your family. Below are some ways to observe and celebrate in your home. Choose what works for you as you prepare to enter the mystery that is Easter!

Worship, Storytelling & Prayer at Home

1) Holy Week Tenebrae / Tenebrae means “shadows,” and for centuries, Christians have held Tenebrae services to explore the mysteries of Holy Week. These simple services using candles are appropriate for all ages.


2) Prayers for Children and Families for Holy Week / Super short prayers for each day of Holy Week. Watch the videos or read the prayers yourself.



Holy Week & Easter at Home


Looking for something more or something different? This series of posts has ideas for observing each day of Holy Week at home and short articles focusing on sharing theology and worship with young children.





Two bonus fun Easter activities!
