Holy Week: from Palm Sunday to Easter

Palm Sunday   Mon-Thu   Good Friday   Holy Saturday   Great Vigil   Easter Day

Palm Sunday

Make Easter cards for family and godparents.

Bring palm fronds or palm crosses home from Sunday service; put some palm fronds with the household cross or crucifix, put the palm crosses up in each person's bedroom, or learn to weave palm fronds into objects to enjoy.

Plant some flowers!
