Holy Week traditions – annual sawdust carpets

Inspired by the beautiful sawdust carpets made in Guatemala during Lent, numerous communities in the North make an annual carpet for Easter.

The church in Fryeburg, Maine makes the carpet inside the fellowship hall on Palm Sunday and members walk through it on Easter.

St. Joan of Arc Catholic Community braved winter weather this year to make their annual carpet with the theme, “Heart of flesh”.
