Sunday 13th April is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week—the most important time in the Christian calendar. Jesus rode a donkey into Jerusalem, and the celebrating people there laid down their cloaks in front of him, and also laid down small branches of trees. The people sang part of Psalm 118: 25–26 – “Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. We bless you from the house of the Lord”.
At the beginning of the service the palm crosses will be blessed– set apart as a symbolic reminder to us that Jesus was no earthly king but the KING of Kings.
