Online Opportunities During Holy Week

With public Masses suspended, the faithful face a particularly challenging Holy Week this year. Many in the Church have risen to this challenge, offering local and national retreats, reflections and other online opportunities to help make Holy Week meaningful for you and your family. Here are just a few of these opportunities.
