Catholic Life Support during Covid-19
Daily Reflection on Twitter
If you are on Twitter then give @JHNChaplaincy a follow, where you'll find a daily reflection every morning and relevant posts and retweets throughout Holy Week, Easter and beyond!
Holy Week Family Retreat and Holy Week Journal
If you would like to plan Holy Week with your family, setting some time out each day in a structured way, then here is a link to some great resources to help you do that. Katie has provided an editable home schedule for the week with the relevant scripture, activities, videos and food ideas for each day. Accompanying this is a printable journal template for your family to complete.
Holy Week Easter Garden
If you would like to be more creative with your time during Holy Week then the Diocese of York have produced an amazing resource which leads you through readings, prayers and reflections alongside creating an Easter Garden. The attached PDF link guides the family through daily readings, songs and activities which you can use alongside the Easter Garden activity or on their own.
When I can't get to church
The Salesians have produced a prayer resource which follows the shape of the Mass and can be used during these times we cannot attend Sunday Eucharist.
Three Minute Retreat
Loyola Press have provided a daily online prayer opportunity in the form of a 3 minute retreat. You will need a laptop, PC or other device, and you will be guided through reflective prayer and mediation each day.
Ten:Ten have released free daily prayers from home during the period of school shutdown. Each week the prayers are based on the theme of the Gospel. Here is the link to prayers at home to share with your family.
This link is for prayers specifically for family liturgy on Sunday.
Prayers of Hope
Churches Together in England have provided a printable poster to be displayed in windows as Christians join together their prayers of hope. Endorsed by the Cardinal, we are encouraged to keep alight our prayers from Sunday throughout the whole week. Plain templates are available to be coloured by children.
From our Parishes
The Diocese of Westminster have published a schedule of daily Masses which are lived streamed from across the diocese. These can be found here:
Fr Philip Knights from St Thomas of Canterbury, Royston will be live-streaming Sunday Mass from the parish Facebook page.
