The Sunday of the Passion – Palm Sunday

Date: Sunday, April 13
Times: 8 am
Location: From Great Hall or Outside, into the Church

The Liturgy for the Sunday of the Passion, or Palm Sunday, begins Holy Week.  The service starts with Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, represented by our own procession with palms, but then quickly shifts mood with the dramatic reading of the Passion by appointed readers.  The congregation takes the part of the crowd.  The reading of the Passion in this way serves as an overture to the Triduum later in the week, when we journey through the events that culminate in Jesus’ crucifixion and death, without which there would be no Easter.
