Palm Sunday: The Journey Begins

Back to news

Celebrating Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem to accomplish His Passion and Death.


Palm Sunday, often referred to as “Passion Sunday” because of the events that took place that week, marks the beginning of Holy Week (25 March 2018), which concludes on Easter Sunday, 1 April 2018.

On Palm Sunday we celebrate Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, greeted by his followers waving palms, marking the beginning of the week of his Passion, Death and Resurrection, the most sacred week in our Christian calendar.

Palm Sunday is an opportunity to reflect on the events of the week ahead and to make ourselves ready for the commemoration of Jesus’ suffering, death and resurrection.
