- Celebrating Holy Week at HomeThis guide will help you set up a space to mark the events of Holy Week and Easter in your homes. After the experience of the last few years and with the pandemic still not gone, some are still nervous about returning to large gatherings, but we have learnt that the Church as the people of God continues in our homes. Even if you are planning to participate fully with the services in the parish it is still a valuable experience to connect this with your own preparations and celebrations at home.
