The most sacred week of the Christian calendar begins on Palm Sunday — March 28th, 2021. For the second year in a row people are invited to keep Holy Week by joining in prayer from home with the ceremonies being carried out in churches without a congregation.
Everyone is invited to connect with others in their household, in their local parish via live stream and radio links, at the Cathedral in Cork, or on the broadcast ceremonies on RTE Television.
There are pages with prayers and reflections for each day of Holy Week which you can print or view at home.
