Catholic All Year at Home, Ep. 6: Holy Thursday

by | Mar 27, 2023 | April, Lent, Lent, Liturgical Living, March, Seasonal | 0 comments

Join my family as we prepare to celebrate Holy Thursday!

Holy Thursday is a day of contradictions. On the evening of Holy Thursday, Jesus’ Passion began. But before that, he gathered with his friends to celebrate the Last Supper and at this meal, he instituted the Eucharist and the sacramental priesthood, truly something to celebrate! Maybe even with sculpted marshmallows and cereal?!

Join us as we prepare a special Last Supper-inspired meal of lamb, potato knishes, bitter herb salad, homemade applesauce, flatbread, and dessert and share ideas for family activities that help kids understand the beauty of this complicated day. Also, Bobby makes a huge mess of the dessert and you’re not going to want to miss that.

Hi! I’m Kendra.

For twenty years now, I’ve been using food, prayer, and conversation based around the liturgical calendar to share the lives of the saints and the beautiful truths and traditions of our Catholic faith. My own ten children, our friends and neighbors, and people just like you have been on this journey with me.

If you’d like to learn more about what Catholics believe and why, and to be inspired by saints from every era all over the world, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with the prospect of how to teach your kids about the faith in a way that’s true, engaging, and lasts a lifetime, we can help!
