Holy Week

 

On Palm Sunday, Jesus arrived in Jerusalem riding a donkey and greeted by crowds shouting, ‘Hosanna to the Son of David!’ By Good Friday, the same crowds were calling for Him to be crucified. This ‘Holy Week’ is the final week of Lent, which takes us to Easter Sunday, the most important event in the Church calendar.

This week, our prayers focus on the last supper that disciples ate with Jesus, and help children to prepare for Easter.

Maundy Thursday

Cardinal Vincent Nichols is encouraging Catholics to pray for our priests through Holy Week – particularly on Maundy Thursday when we recall the Last Supper and the institution of the Holy Eucharist.

“We’re asking priests to renew their promises, the promises they made at Ordination, in a personal and devotional way. And I ask you, please, to use the time after the Mass of the Lord’s Supper to include prayers for your priests. They give their lives to the Lord in His service.

“I ask you, please, this Holy Week – this Maundy Thursday – to pray for them – that they will be faithful and generous. And I know they are spending a lot of time in prayer for you.

“Let’s pray for our priests as we approach the Sacred Triduum and walk alongside Christ through his Passion, death and Resurrection.”

Good Friday

 

Our Prayer

On Friday 10th April our school family came together in prayer and song for a live stream Good Friday liturgy provided by Dan and Emily from One Life Music. During the service members of staff made crosses at home. Mrs Ryan also wrote us a lovely prayer to go with our liturgy.
