I pray that this time is one of grace and that, despite all that is happening around us, you are finding signs of hope.
For decades, Liturgical Press and St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota have provided exceptional resources for Catholics across the globe. On Friday, they released a simple pastoral resource that I ask you to circulate throughout your parish community. Open the PDF below.
These prayers are not intended to replace the liturgies of Holy Week. Rather, they are intended to assist families, as the Domestic Church, to honour the cycle of the Triduum from their homes while public celebration is not possible.
The text is neither approved or mandated by any particular body. Consequently, members of your assembly are free to adapt as they see fit.
In our hunger for the sacraments, I am confident that many will find strength in the food provided here.
I am grateful for all that you are doing to celebrate the Paschal Mystery, in ways big and small.
Michael Bechard (Rev.)
Director of Liturgy | Diocese of London
