Just barely in time, I finished these resources for Palm Sunday in the home!
In the unusual circumstances of Palm Sunday 2020, when most public Masses have been suspended, many of the faithful are looking for a way to observe the beautiful traditions of Palm Sunday in the home. This set included a booklet with a blessing of palms appropriate for use by laypersons, an at home procession, and a script for a dramatized version of the Passion of Our Lord according to the gospel of Saint Matthew.
The blessing and processing would be a fun thing to do before watching a broadcast. We plan to begin our family prayer service on Palm Sunday with the blessing of branches and procession, then use the script during our family Mass prayers. And we’ll be wearing red!
For the Palm Sunday booklet, you get an 8 page pdf file, that can be printed as individual pages. Or, you can open the pdf in Adobe (there is a free version available for download here) and print it as a booklet on 6 pieces of paper. For best results print on high quality paper (like 24 weight). Lighter weight paper will work, but there will be more show through from the back.
You’ll get an additional 4 page pdf file, formatted two per page, out of order, so they will be in order when printed double sided. This one is designed to be printed without the Adobe booklet interface, or by uploading to Staples.com or any local copy shop.
The Passion Play Script is an 8 page pdf, 8.5×11 pages, that can be printed single or double-sided. If printing double-sided, flip on the long edge.
Your purchase entitles you to print this booklet as many times as you’d like for your own household’s personal use. Please do not share the digital files or print the booklet for others. Thank you! For an extended license, that allows printing the items from one listing for classrooms, groups, or extended family, please see this listing.
Please let me know if you find any typos or errors or if you have trouble with downloading or printing by emailing me at email@example.com.
I highly recommend creating an account when you check out, so you’ll be able to access your downloads any time from any device by logging in and clicking “downloads.”
