Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday (also Passion Sunday) commemorates Jesus Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem before his suffering and death on the cross. It is associated with the blessing and procession of palms.. This tradition corresponds to the palm branches the crowd scattered in front of Jesus as he rode into Jerusalem.

Palm Sunday is the first day of Holy Week which also includes Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday.
