  • Holy Week Liturgy Virtual Workshop

    Two-day workshop on preparing the liturgies of Holy Week. 
    Presented by, Corinna Laughlin, St. James Cathedral. 


    February 9 and 10
    10:00am - 12 Noon on Zoom


    In this two-day virtual workshop we will go in depth on the liturgies of Holy Week. We will explore each of the liturgies of Holy Week, from Palm Sunday through Easter. Our focus will be on best practices and there will be plenty of time for questions and sharing. And while we still don't know quite what Holy Week 2021 will look like, we will explore how the ongoing pandemic is likely to impact the liturgies this year, and how we can prepare and adapt our parish practice.

    This presentation is geared toward parish staff and volunteers who help prepare the liturgies of Holy Week.

    This virtual workshop is FREE. Registration is required for the Zoom link.
    Email Jennifer Day to register for this virtual presentation.
