Holy Week & Easter for Families
Welcome! This page is designed to help families explore together the mysteries of Holy Week and Easter. The stories of Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection are probably the Bible stories we find the hardest to tell children. We prefer to stick to the stories about the kind and loving Jesus. The Jesus that feeds the hungry, heals the sick and welcomes the outcast. It is hard to share the ugly story of how people turned on Jesus and killed him. But no one of any age can get to Easter joy without knowing what happened earlier in the week. It is our hope that these resources will help you and your children delve more deeply into the stories of Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter.
Use as few , or as many of the resources as you like. Choose the ones that work best for your family. We will leave this up on the website so, if you don't get to it all during Holy Week, know that you can return at any time.
