Praying Holy Week and Easter together

For the first time in living memory most people will not be able to go to their local church for the most sacred week of the year. During Holy Week (between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday) Christians contemplate the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ and prayerfully attend a series of liturgies which are celebrated on the days corresponding to the events in the life of Christ.

We are apart but we can be one

This year, due to restrictions resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic, Catholics are invited to join in prayer from their homes while the Masses and other ceremonies are held in churches without a congregation present and some priests celebrate Mass privately in their homes.

All the Holy Week liturgies will be celebrated at the Cathedral in Cork and people can join by theΒ Cathedral live stream.

Enniskeane Parish will broadcast ceremonies on the parish Facebook Page.

For people who are at home and wish to pray during these sacred days on their own or with family, a series of Prayer Guides is available here.

Enniskeane Holy Week overview 2015

Everyone is welcome to join with us in prayer as we journey with Christ through Holy Thursday and Good Friday, as we watch and pray in Vigil on Holy Saturday, and as we rejoice in his Resurrection at Easter.

On Good Friday, the first 13 Stations of the Cross will be prayed at the same time (6.30pm) but at different traditional places of prayer across the parish. People are invited to attend and pray at one of these Stations. The 14th Station will be prayed by everyone together at Enniskeane Church – beginning at 7.20pm.
