This entry is re-enacted in the main service of the day as palms are blessed and carried in procession through our Church.

During the Eucharist the story of Christ’s Passion is read as an act of preparation for the three principal days of Holy Week: Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday.
