Join Us For The Palm Processional
At the start of both our 8:00 am and 10:30 am Sunday services on March 29, we will gather in Washington Park for a blessing of the palms, followed by a singing processional to continue our services in the church. The children of St. Thomas will be on hand before the 10:30 am service to help distribute the palms.
Palm Sunday Service Times
There will be three services on this feast day – at 8:00 am, 10:30 am and 5:30 pm – when our community meets in remembrance of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem.
What is the Meaning of Palm Sunday?
The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John all tell the story of Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem riding on a donkey. The people celebrated his arrival with great rejoicing, laying down cloaks and small tree branches or palms before him. This event occurred about a week before Jesus’ Resurrection.
