Holy Week and Easter

 

St. Paul’s will be offering the following through Zoom. All details to join will be posted in the events section on Realm. Here is the full Triduum (plus Palm Sunday) liturgy booklet. Individual liturgies are posted below and in the resources section on Realm. If you still have not set up your Realm account, email the parish office for meeting details.

As you anticipate participating in these liturgies, we have compiled a list of ways to prepare your home for Holy Week. Here is a Holy Week (at home) resource for families with children. We recommend you begin by creating a sacred space as a focal point for each of the following offerings:
