Palm Sunday At Home Weekend Prayer
Lest we forget our faith, I invite you (as individuals or as groups of people at home) to be creative in preserving a sacred space in your weekly routine where God’s presence can be experienced, using the time you would have set aside to come to Mass at church. You might:
Play this video as a Pre-Mass Meditation (about a 6 minute video)
Read this introduction to the celebration of Palm Sunday.
Play the Shofar
Read the first and second scripture readings assigned for this weekend and then view the gospel video.
Use the homily included here on video for added inspiration and discuss (if praying with others).
Pray together the Intercessions for this weekend, concluding with the Lord’s Prayer.
Close with “Were You There?”
This time of reflection at home can keep us all united in prayer as the Body of Christ until we can assemble again for the weekly celebration of the Eucharist in our church building. If you have children in your house and would like to try a Children’s Liturgy of the Word, please use the resources here.

Join Our Parish
Saint Katharine Drexel Parish pledges to be a Eucharist-centered, welcoming community, forming loving disciples, giving selflessly, in realization of the Kingdom of God.
Our parish Mission Statement presents us with an exciting and daunting challenge: to form a modern Christian community in an ancient faith– to become the Living Body of Christ in a secular society– to embody a Catholic tradition in a pluralistic world. Thanks be to God that the Holy Spirit is promised to us for strength and guidance.
We have an inspiring role model in Katharine Drexel. She is recognized as a saint because she was a woman of worldly wealth who embodied Christ and the Catholic tradition for the poor, the outcast, and the forgotten of society during the 20th century. Our task as a faith community is to discern how we will do the same during the 21st century.
Together as a parish, we are charting a course to follow Christ as Katharine did. Following her example, it is in worship and prayer that we discover strength for the journey. It is a privilege for me to lead you on that pilgrimage of faith. If you are looking for a spiritual home, we hope that you will consider joining us!
