Our Plans for Celebrating the Triduum & Easter

The Easter Triduum begins tomorrow. We've been doing our best to get things ready. Although I still feel as though I could use another week of planning :) Here are a few of our plans to celebrate this most holy time of the year.

Holy Thursday

The Messianic Seder Supper (here) ,or hereMass of the Lord's Supper

Good Friday

Fast (bread and water) for adults, abstain for kids,
Confession, Stations of the Cross,
maybe - Passion & Veneration of the Cross
Watch The Passion of the Christ in the evening after the little ones are in bed.

Holy Saturday

Hot Cross Buns for Breakfast,

Resurrection Rolls and Easter Story Eggs.

Die Easter Eggs,

Decorate Paschal Candle,

Bandaids For Christ's wounds(Crown of Thorns). My plan for this to melt crayon wax over Our Lord's Wound's (the empty holes on our Crown ofThorns). This will serve as bandaids for Christ's wounds. Prepare as much of our Easter meal as possible.


Prepare Easter baskets

Easter Sunday

8:30 am Mass (My honey has the honor of lectoring :)

Brunch at home, while the kids enjoy their baskets.

Have my parents over for an early Easter supper. Enjoy our time together celebrating this AWESOME HOLYDAY!!

Thank you Jesus for loving us so much!!!! Help us to love others as you have loved us!
