Palm Sunday Choral Eucharist: Online Live Stream
April 05, 2020
Palm Sunday begins the time in the Christian year known as Holy Week, and commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Each of the four gospels describe the crowds greeting Jesus by waving palm branches, and we ritually join them, shouting, “Hosanna!” in praise. From the songs of triumph and joy, the service turns to an account of Jesus’ passion, suffering and death – preparing us for the solemn reflections of Holy Week.
You may wish to have piece of greenery at home to be blessed via livestream. Palms blessed at Grace Cathedral will be saved, and next year, we will burn them together, making ashes used to mark the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday.
Free and open to all
