The week between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, Holy Week, is the most sacred time of year. During this special time, we enter into the passion of Christ — his crucifixion, death and resurrection — through liturgical celebration and personal conversion. While the season of Lent is a very important time in the Church, it is helpful to remember that our Lenten practices (prayer, fasting and almsgiving) are meant as preparation for the three days of the Triduum.
The most solemn week in the Church calendar, Holy Week is a time to contemplate, pray, attend your parish liturgies–and try to explain it all to your Catholic kids. This post has more activities and ideas from around the Teaching Catholic Kids and around the Catholic web.
