Holy Week: from Palm Sunday to Easter

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

Monday - Thursday

Finish as many household chores and Easter preparations as possible during this time. There is an old tradition of thoroughly cleaning house in the days before sundown on Holy Thursday. Get what you need for the meals of Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Easter Day, so you don't need to run errands then.

Arrange for Friday and Saturday to be quiet family days, with few or no outside activities scheduled.

Make a special Easter bread now if it will keep until Easter morning. On Holy Thursday, make hot cross buns for Good Friday.
