CREATING SACRED SPACE AT HOME FOR HOLY WEEK

 

We have said from the beginning of this unusual time of being apart that the church is not the building. The church is the people. While we miss being together in the same space, we have found creative ways to stay connected as a community and we will continue that throughout Holy Week. As we participate in online worship during Holy Week, we invite you to create some sacred space in your home to leave up throughout the week. If you have children at home, invite them to help. They have been well taught in Godly Play how to create sacred space.

 

To create sacred space at home, find a table, space on a shelf, or even an upside‐down box somewhere close to where you participate in our online Morning Prayer services. Cover that space with a cloth and place a cross (you might even make one from small tree branches), a candle, and perhaps a Bible or The Book of Common Prayer. Different services for Holy Week may suggest different things on your home altar. I’ve made some suggestions about that below, along with the times for each service.

For more about how to set aside this space in your home, Sharon Ely Pearson, a Christian formation specialist for the Episcopal Church, has some great tips right here.

 

Palm Sunday

Collect some greenery from your yard or from a walk outside and place it on your home altar to wave as we sing All Glory, Laud and Honor.

Tenebrae

Place a candle on your home altar to extinguish at the end of the service.

 

Maundy Thursday

Have an agape supper in your home. Post a picture of it on the Epiphany Community Facebook page before we gather online for the liturgy at 6:30. Place a cross and some candles on your home altar which will be removed at the end of the service.

 

Good Friday

Place a cross on your home altar for veneration of the cross.

Easter Vigil

Have a candle on your home altar ready to light when we light the paschal candle. If you have your baptismal candle, that would be a great candle to have on your table.

 

Easter

Place flowers and greenery next to a cross on your home altar. Have some bells (or something that you can make a joyful noise with) ready for the moment when we say our Alleluias. You might want to get dressed up to make the day feel more special and prepare a special meal for after the service. After the service, you might call someone in the parish and say “Alleluia, Christ is Risen!”
