As parishes and churches make final preparations for Holy Week and Triduum, many are trying to find solutions for sharing the Passion Gospel with the congregation despite the removal of pew worship resources. The USCCB does not require a license for including the Passion texts for Palm Sunday and Good Friday in a worship aid for these days. In light of the continuing challenges, the USCCB has kindly given permission for GIA Publications to make a pdf version of the Mark and John Passion narratives available as a free download. Please feel free to share this resource with the members of your community.

Thank you to the USCCB and Mary Elizabeth Sperry for this permission!
