Palm Sunday

March 25 at the 11:30 a.m. Mass


Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday, or “Passion Sunday,” where a joyous procession with palms commemorates Christ’s messianic entry into Jerusalem. The faithful will receive palm branches which will be blessed and which are a witness to faith in Jesus Christ, the messianic king, and in His Paschal Victory.

Join us at the 11:30 a.m. Mass in the Plaza for a special Scripture reading, prayers, blessing of palms and then procession into the Church. We will also be joined by the RCIA members (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). All other Mass times will undergo the same rite and receive palm branches but it will occur in the back of the Church and the faithful will stand in their pews before Mass as normal.

After Mass, we encourage you to post on our Facebook page a picture of your palm-made cross and share your experience of Palm Sunday Mass!

What Do I Do with Old Palm Branches?

Do you have an old palm that you want to discard? Consider giving it to someone else for prayer or religious display. Otherwise, you should burn or bury it since it is a blessed religious object.


O God, help me not to seek my own interests
but share the suffering and the joy
of my brothers and sisters,
ready to carry the weight
of the poorest and the weakest
and thus to become a sign to the world,
the “sacrament” of your love
for one another and for all!

–Pope Francis

you want us to love one another
as you love each one of us.
Let us love you.
By giving your life you gave all that you had,
your life, for us.
You died on the cross because you love us
and want us to love one another
as you loved each one of us.
You came to teach us the tender love of God.

–St. Teresa of Calcutta
