This week we will remember the dying and rising of our Lord Jesus Christ. If we were at school, we would put aside our regular lessons and focus solely on the events of Holy Week with a Faith Family meeting and prayer service and then attend the longstanding Holy Rosary tradition of the Living stations of the cross put on by our 8th graders. I am disappointed that we will have to experience this at home and away from each other this year, but there are still many ways for you to make Jesus’ journey to the cross meaningful and rich in your homes. Maybe some new family traditions will come of it!
I have put together some activities I typically do this week for you to do on your own with your child found under the Holy Week tab on in our Google Classroom. I will not be writing daily lesson plans so you can chose what and how you teach your child this week using these common resources. We will have our first virtual school mass Wednesday Morning that I hope we can all watch “together.,” and Ms. Horton will be sending out the Faith Family prayer service script we would be doing on Holy Thursday so that you can all participate at home “together”. Friday is usually a dark day for us as we try to keep the technology to a minimum and the lights low or off altogether. Perhaps this is something you’d like to implement at home to minimize the distractions.
I will not be doing any Zoom meetings this week or next, but I will look forward to getting back into our new, regular routine on Monday, April 20th. It won’t be the same, but I hope you all have a very blessed Holy Week and happy, happy Easter.
