Looking Ahead to Holy Week
This Holy Week presents an opportunity for individuals and families to bring Holy Week home in a way that promises to be life-giving. To assist in this process, the Diocese of Georgia has a resource page at our website (
) with documents you can download and use in your home.
For example, there are materials you can use to bring the Stations of the Cross into your home or even your yard. There are materials for talking about Holy Week with children of different ages and a booklet for three days of in home worship taking you from Maundy Thursday through Good Friday to the Easter Vigil. These in-home resources can add to the
liturgies congregations offer online
