  • This activity is actually a Blackline Master from the Finding God program, gr. 5.
  • Invite the young people to imagine that they have been invited to draw the cover for the parish bulletin for Holy Week, depicting scenes from Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday/Easter morning.
  • Provide copies of the Blackline Master: Scenes from Holy Week and invite the young people to draw prayerfully.
  • Consider playing some instrumental music quietly in the background.
  • When they are done, invite volunteers to share their work with the group.
