The crisis at hand reminds us of the necessary power and comfort of prayer. Holy Week demands a new style of prayer for us this year in preparation for the Triduum and Easter. Our staff has been busy organizing the wide array of resources below for you and your family. There is something for everyone!
We have developed guides and reflections for each part of the Triduum and Easter. In the resources listed under each event day, you will find links for the following:
- Youth – Minister for Youth and Young Adults Margaret Lee explains the powerful Easter Triduum time and activities for engaging with teens.
- Children – Child Minister Amy Rebholz has assembled prayers and fun-filled thoughtful activities for Holy Week, preparing our hearts, homes and souls for your Easter celebration.
- Adults – Adult Minister Ed Duncklee takes us on an inspiring journey of reflections on our salvation, plus you’ll have a chance to experience the Stations of the Cross with our sister community in Teosinte, El Salvador.
- Liturgy & Music – Rejoice, it is Easter! Pastoral Associate Mike Kamenski provides the readings, responses and reflections for Sunday, April 12, along with the “Hallelujah Chorus” and more.
- Daily Services – Please join Fr. Peter Patrick Kimani and Fr. Larry Chapman this week on our parish Facebook site (https://www.facebook.com/StSebsMKE – you do not need to be a Facebook member to watch) as we complete our Lenten preparations and renew ourselves in the Resurrection of the Lord.
