Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week. The liturgy of the palms commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem as the people greet him with shouts of joy. But all the joy sours as the service transitions to the Passion Gospel’s recounting of Jesus’ betrayal, arrest, and crucifixion. From here on, we walk each day of the week under the shadow of the cross.
Please join us on Palm Sunday via Zoom or Facebook livestream.
9:45 am: Our morning together will begin with Coffee Hour with the Clergy. Please Zoom* in for a chat with us at 9:45 am.
(*Zoom meeting details were sent to our parishioners on April 3. Please contact Fr. Chris Golding for access to the meeting: firstname.lastname@example.org.)
