FREE HOLY WEEK RESOURCES
Holy Week is such an important and special time in the Orthodox Calendar. It begins with Lazarus Saturday (this year April 8th) and concludes with Great and Holy Saturday (April 15th) before we celebrate the Feast of the Resurrection (i.e., Easter) on Sunday, April 16th.
This week, known as Pascha (the Passion Week) is filled with important commemorative events as we walk with Jesus in His final moments on Earth before His Sacrifice for us on the Cross and His Glorious resurrection conquering death by death.
Bridges to Orthodoxy developed these Holy Week Resources to help our Orthodox Youth stay engaged with as many of the Pascha Services as possible!
For our Elementary Kids, Bridges to Orthodoxy developed some fun activity worksheets. Each day of Pascha, the kids will have an activity sheet with coloring, fill-in-the-blanks, puzzles, and more tied to something they'll be hearing about that particular day. Feel free to DOWNLOAD it for free HERE.
For our older Middle and High Schooler Teens - this year they've been learning about all the "I AM" statements Jesus made on Earth telling us who He is... but now it is our turn to profess who we say that He is. The teens Holy Week Journal encourages them to tie an "I AM" statement to something specific they hear each day of Pascha, journal, and ultimately strengthen their own faith in Christ. Feel free to Download the Journal for Free HERE.
