Palm Sunday

The Sunday of the Passion

Holy Week AT HOME


Palm Sunday is the day we commemorate Jesus’ arrival in Jerusalem, when he was greeted by a crowd saying “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” and waving palm branches.

Staying home? What you need

Palm branches! Buy them online, at a florist, or make them together out of green construction paper like this or like this (only bigger). 

What to do at home

Have your palms ready to march through your house during the beginning of the service or around your neighborhood before the service!

Go on a processional Prayer Walk around the neighborhood, carrying your palms.
