PALM SUNDAY FOR FAMILY & CHILDREN
PALM SUNDAY is the beginning of Holy Week. We remember that Jesus came to Jerusalem to celebrate the feast of Passover with his friends.
He arrived into the city on a donkey and the people waved palms and shouted ‘Hosanna’ as he passed by.
This was their way of showing that they believed that Jesus was indeed the ‘Messiah,’ the one sent by God to save them.
On Palm Sunday the priest blesses palms at Mass, we bring them home with us and put them somewhere that we can see them during the coming year.
This year we won’t be able to go to Mass and bring home the palms.
So why not find a branch with green leaves when you go for a walk or in your garden?
If you can’t do this then print out, colour and cut out the picture of the Palm Leaves below
On Palm Sunday watch the story of how Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey here
Pray together as you put the palm in your prayer space, in the window or on your front door
‘Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest’.
