Keeping Holy Thursday Holy

The Triduum is here, which means Easter is around the corner! These next three days are the most holy days in the Church, so I am always looking for ways to make that reality come alive. Here is what we are up to today.

This morning we made Easter napkin ring holders for the Easter table. They are made in much the same way as the holly napkin rings and turkey napkin rings we made for Christmas and Thanksgiving.

We also made unleavened bread to have with grape juice for dinner tonight to remind us of the Last Supper which we remember today. Check out this post for directions.

After naps the kids and I will be making this last supper scene from Catholic Icing. You can download the printables on her site.

We will also make hot cross buns for breakfast tomorrow, which is a long standing tradition in the Church.

Finally we will be heading to church tonight for Holy Thursday services. If you have never taken part in the Triduum services, I highly recommend them. They are full of beauty and meaning that sets the mood for celebrating the death and resurrection of Christ.

Blessings to you on the end of this Lenten journey!
