Forming Catholic identity across generations
May 22, 2024


Forty days before the Triduum, the Lenten season disposes Catechumens and the faithful to celebrate the paschal mystery through prayer and penitential practices.

Activity of the Week

Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion

Choose one of the following activities as a way to further reflect on the Sunday readings:

  • Together with your family discuss the Lord’s Passion and its meaning for us. Invite family members to share what part of the Passion story touches them most.
  • As a family, plan how you will celebrate Passion/Palm Sunday and the Easter Triduum. Celebrate Christ who died and is now risen and living with us forever.
  • Place blessed palm branches in significant places in your home to remind you that Jesus died and rose to new life for you.
  • Have each family member write the message, “Jesus died and rose to new life for me”, on a small sheet of paper. Invite each person to discuss what that message means to him or her.
