Palm Sunday, The start of Holy Week

A day of reflection and spiritual preparation

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, the most sacred week in the liturgical calendar. This day commemorates Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, a week before his crucifixion and resurrection.

The term “Palm Sunday” refers to the palm or olive branches that the crowds used to welcome Jesus as he entered Jerusalem. This event is described in the four canonical Gospels of the Bible.

It is a day of profound significance, symbolising both praise and spiritual preparation for the crucial events to come.
