Triduum Resources and Reflections

Pope Francis invited people from around the world to live Holy Week and the Triduum as ‘one great domestic liturgy’ in a General Audience on Wednesday (8th). During the event, which was live streamed, the Pope said "God’s love healed our sin with His forgiveness at Easter by making death a passage that changed our fear into trust and our anguish into hope… In the same way, Easter tells us that God can turn everything to good, and that with Him we can truly trust that all will be well. That is why on Easter morning we are told: Do not be afraid!’. We are not alone, God does not forget us.”

Good Friday Reflections

Click here to access a set of meditations on the Stations of The Cross recorded and written by Fr Peter Newsam, with images from the stations his church at Petworth.

Stations of the Cross from St Edward's Church in Keymer.


A series of Psalms from the parish of Our Lady of Ransom – St Agnes – St Gregory in Eastbourne.

Easter through Art is a wonderful resource provided by Bishop's Conference. Using seven paintings for individual or group reflection (those you are at home with presently) you are invited to journey with Christ from death to new life.

Holy Week Resources for Teenagers

A group of youth workers, chaplains and teachers from across our Diocese have created a resource aimed especially for teenagers. The Easter Journey 2020 website and social channels are providing a scripture reflection written by a different member of their team each day with prompts on how to live this out in our day to day lives, especially while we’re so far away from each other.

For children

What is the Easter Triduum? Celebrate the Feast of Feasts in your family with Colour & Shape on Facebook. There will be a short video for each part of the Triduum, with songs, the appropriate part of the story, and a prayer activity. You can access this material here.

Play resources to use with your children. Several of them are available via YouTube

The Mystery of Easter 

How to make an Easter garden with Young Children

We are used to seeing the Christmas crib with the figures in the Nativity story, it is the central point in many Christian homes at Christmas and is an important focus for telling the story of Christ’s birth to our children. Making an Easter Garden at home can be just as effective, helping children to understand and explore the Easter miracle. 

The tradition of making Easter Gardens apparently dates back to the Victorian period, when children gathered spring flowers and created gardens that showed as many elements of the Easter story as possible. Jesus’ work of salvation began on the cross, but it did not end there. He was buried and rose again on the third day, leaving an empty tomb. This miracle has changed history:

- It is this miracle that makes us want to celebrate Easter. 

- It is this miracle that makes us want to shout the good news from the rooftops.

You will need the following things to make your Easter Garden:

  • A shallow tray or pot
  • Something to form the base: soil, wet sand, plasticine or play-doh.
  • Something to make the cave – a small plastic cup, maybe, on its side, or some large stones
  • A large stone or piece of cardboard to make the cave entrance
  • Smaller stones or scrunched-up paper to make a path
  • Small plants (real or drawn)
  • 3 crosses – you can make these from twigs or lolly sticks

Fill your tray with the soil/sand/plasticine or play-doh. 

Using a cup or stones make the tomb. 

At the other end of the garden make a mound on which the three crosses are placed.

Arrange small flowers, grass or moss to complete the garden.

Depending on the size available you could add other little features like a small pond (a jam jar lid)

The large stone can be placed over the tomb entrance on Good Friday and removed on Easter Sunday.

Making it Meaningful

Here are some ideas you can explore to talk about the Easter story:

  • I wonder what the women were thinking as they walked up to the tomb?
  • I wonder how heavy the stone at the entrance was?
  • Let’s try to think of all the people that the bible says were in the garden at some point in the story.
  • What could we put in the tomb to represent Jesus’s death?  What could we put there on Easter morning to show that He has risen?
