About Palm Sunday
Palm Sunday begins the Holy Week leading to Easter and the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It commemorates Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem where people put their palms down in front of his path.
On Palm Sunday, palms are distributed in church and blessed during the mass. People take them home and place them around religious pictures, statues, or other objects. They remain there for a year until the next Palm Sunday when they are replaced by newly blessed Palms.
When discarding old palms, remember it is a blessed religious object and should be burned or buried. Some gardeners bury it in their home garden to bless the coming year’s crop.
Did you Know? The ashes you receive on Ash Wednesday are from the prior year’s palms.
