Holy Week At-Home Worship Resources

Greetings! Here you will find links to download a complete pray-at-home Triduum. These services have been written by the Rev. Josephine Robertson & the Rev. Joseph Peters-Mathews (of All Saints, Bellevue and St Hilda St Patrick, Edmonds respectively). They have had editing help from an extensive number of clergy.

We assume that you may edit these for your own setting and we encourage you to send us those changes and we’ll post them here. Please describe the setting you’ve edited them for (families with kids, a nursing home, etc) so we can properly describe each file and folks needing them can download the right Triduum for thier setting!

At Home Triduum

This set of three services works best when planned ahead. Please share these with your community (or download for your own use) as soon as possible, read through the services so you know what is suggested and can prepare ahead of time!

All services have been written for a small at home gathering without clergy. They can be prayed by an individual or all members of the household. All are flexible and should be adapted to meet your needs.

Blessings on your Holy Week.

  1. Thank you so much for these resources – I had been working on an Easter Vigil for our Diocese, and came across what you had done. We borrowed a lot from your Vigil, made adjustments for our context (rural and northern Canada) and formatted it into a booklet. I deeply appreciate your careful attention and generosity in creating these services – may God continue to inspire and bless you in this work!

  2. Josephine! Thank you a million million times for this. What a blessing, and beautifully done.

  3. Thank you for these resources. Will be sharing the Maundy Thursday meal at home resource with the good people of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Greenville, PA. We’ll then offer those who wish the chance to gather in mid-evening in a group chat so they can see each other and talk about their experience. Had been trying to wrap my head around what to do with the typical foot-washing and Eucharist, and this is a fine, fine way to handle those things for these times.
