Passion Narrative for Palm Sunday/Good Friday

During these days of COVID, we do not have worship aids in the pews for our services. As has been our custom, the reading of the Passion has been a participative activity for the congregation over the years. To assist with this, we have prepared a copy of the people’s responses only that you may wish to download or you may download a complete copy of the text to follow along and participate. The Passion is read on both Palm (Passion) Sunday and Good Friday; the source is different for each day.

We have also found that OCP, the publisher of Breaking Bread, our hymnal, now has an eMissal app for Breaking Bread 2021. The app is available for $4.99. This may be another option for some. The app contains over 850 songs, psalms and Gospel acclamations, readings for Sundays and holy days as well as the order of Mass. Obviously, the full text of the Passions used for Palm Sunday and Good Friday are included in this app. Click here for more information about the app.
