Holy Week at the Community of the Lamb

The liturgy of the Holy Week in the Community of the Lamb is a retreat in which all are invited to follow Jesus step by step in his passion, death and resurrection.

Beginning April 7 with the Mass of the Good Shepherd and running every day through Easter, the offices are more numerous and more developed than those celebrated in most parishes. Most of the offices are followed by eucharistic adoration. The Community of the Lamb is located at 36 S. Boeke St. in Kansas City, Kansas.
