Since the Sunday Gospel is the heart of the Gospel Weeklies, an important part of preparing to share the Gospel with children is to read and reflect on it in advance of your class session. The Gospel at Home and the Gospel for All Ages (see Gathering Rituals / Questions) are resources on our website that can help you do this.

Palm/Passion Sunday celebrates Jesus’ triumphant entrance into Jerusalem. It begins the most solemn week of the Church year. During Holy Week, we remember Jesus’ Passion, Death, and Resurrection. We also listen to the Passion according to Matthew at this Sunday’s Mass.
