HM Holy Week Encounters

chicosThe Holy Week Encounters began in Toledo, Spain. They were organized by a group of young people of the Home of the Mother who wanted to live Holy Week in an atmosphere of greater reflection and profound joy. As the Home of the Mother grew larger, so too did the Holy Week Encounters. Every year, more people come to spend Holy Week with the Home, attracted by the spirit of prayer and recollection.

In recent years, Holy Week Encounters have been celebrated simultaneously in several countries. In 2013 there were encounters in the United States, Spain, Italy, and Ecuador.
