Palm Sunday ushers in Holy Week in Greenwich
GREENWICH — Greenwich churchgoers celebrated Palm Sunday with an outdoor blessing of the palms ceremony before Mass at St. Mary Church.
Congregants gathered outside in the church’s plaza for a song and prayers, along with the blessing of the palms before proceeding inside for Mass.
Palm Sunday is a Christian observance that falls the Sunday before Easter, celebrating the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem by processions in which palm fronds are carried. It marks the beginning of Holy Week.
