Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday Traditions

“Every year for as long as I can remember, Palm Sunday was of great importance to my family. With bay leaves and palm crosses in our hands at our local church we proclaim our faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and our readiness and willingness to follow Him in every prayer and sacrament, in every act of love, kindness and mercy. And after the liturgy my mother and I always put on a delicious seafood lunch at home for our family.”
