HHoly WeekHHHoly We
This Holy Week is like no other. We will not be going to our local church to get blessed palms, have our feet washed, kiss the cross or watch the new Easter candle being lit. This year we will have to find ways to make the week holy at home.We hope that these resources will help you and your child enter into this sacred and special time in a prayerful way.

Reflection/ Thinking Prayer
The risen Jesus was with his disciples. They were filled with joy when they realised that he was alive. The risen Jesus is alive today and with us. Let us be full of joy as we say together:
Response The risen Jesus is alive and with us.
He is with us each and every day. (R)
He is with us when we pray. (R)
He is with us when we work. (R)
He is with us among those whom we love. (R)
He is with us at school as we learn. (R)
He is with us as we gather together at mass. (R)
May we like the disciples, recognise that the Lord Jesus is with us always.
