When is Palm Sunday?

Palm Sunday is a Christian moveable feast which always falls on the Sunday before Easter. The feast commemorates an event reported by all four Canonical Gospels Mark 11:1-11, Matthew 21:1-11, Luke 19:28-44, and John 12:12-19: the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem in the days before his Passion.*


As Jesus made his entry into Jerusalem, the crowds lined his path with palm fronds.


In churches today, observances include the blessing and distribution of Palm leaves to their congregants.


Today is also the beginning of Holy Week, the countdown to Christ's crucifixion and his resurrection on Easter Sunday.


Note: This years extra palm leaves will be used for the ashes on Ash Wednesday.
